Matching Ends

   Soooo... time to put together a nightstand that will stand the test of time. Decided to make two as well (one for each side of the bed). Simply made and not a single piece of metal! While getting back into boat building I just finished reading a book about the history of ships fastenings turns out the vikings used treneals (many different spellings all equate to what today are known simply as "pegs") with wedges inserted into the ends. So I tried this with these pieces and it worked great!
   Since they are going next to the bed they were given the "Flow" series rock treatment with stone handles for the drawer and inlaid stones finished with satin. Next up, Lamps!!
