New bedside tables!

Submitted by bec4547 on Mon, 09/12/2016 - 04:52

Took about 26 hours total, so a full weekend and couple of evenings painting!

I made a couple of changes - things are typically in cm/mm here in the UK, and couldn't find 1" planks anywhere (so used 18mm planks, and 44mm square timber). Also used 18mm MDF for the sides and back, as it was a bit expensive to use nice wood, and no point anyway if it's being painted.

Very pleased with the result, they look great.
