Nightstand set provide comfort and organization of your bedroom. Instead of buying bedside tables, you can make your own. Bedside tables are a basic carpentry project that a do-it-yourself homeowner can face on a weekend. The legs to a bedside table consist of two plates joined together to form a 90-degree angle that faces the inside of the support. Select a quality wood such as cherry, walnut or maple for your bedside tables so they can be a long-lasting, beautiful piece of furniture. A bedside table offers a convenient place to put your personal items while you are in bed. It is also an ideal place to keep a book, remote control or a glass of water. While you can buy a wooden bedside table, you can also easily make your own.
Use old wooden boxes for the bedside table to add instant character and appeal to the project. The rustic look worn out the age of the boxes will make an attractive addition to any bedroom style. Adjust the table saw blade to cut at a 45-degree angle. Raise the height of the blade so that it is cut through the thickness of the eight boards. Adjust the saw guide so that the blade will cut only the edge of the corner off the boards. Lock the fence in place. Place each flat plate on the saw narrow nightstand one at a time. Slide a 1-by-22-1 / 2 inch flush against the side fence of the table saw with the side discharge 2-by-22-1 / 2 inches on the table. Guide the boards through the saw to cut a 45-degree edge along a 22-1 /2-inch side of each board.
Sand the cut edges of the eight boards with a fine grain sanding block until they are completely smooth. Always sand in the direction of the grain of the surface. Apply a layer of wood glue along each cutting edge of the eight boards. Match the boards in four groups of two. Join paired boards along the cut edges. Press the gaskets firmly on the gaskets to form sets of legs 90-degree angle. Align two metal brackets inside each leg assembly. Position one 2 inches from the top and bottom modern nightstands edges. Drive the included screws through the mounting holes of the supports on the leg joints with a screw gun. Wipe off any glue that oozes with a damp cloth. Allow the glue to dry for 24 hours before working with the leg assemblies.
