Mid-century Nightstand with Hexagon pattern drawers

My goal was to build an original yet timeless nightstand. I had vision of a black carcass with hexagon pattern drawers, and a mid-century style base. I built it entirely out of ash wood, and I love how the grain really pops.

In the video tutorial, I walk you through every step of making this nightstand, from making the carcass from rough-sawn lumber, to making the base and the drawers, making wooden drawer slides, and of course, how to make the hexagon drawer fronts. Oh, and I’ll also share my secret for how to get a deep black wood stain without hiding the grain.

Love the hexagon pattern on the drawers.
