Shaker-Inspired Night Stand


The Shaker-inspired Night Stand is one of Tommy Macdonald’s favorite projects. This particular piece really shows off Tommy’s style in using rough cut lumber and highlighting the figured maple that he features in the piece.

In this episode, Tommy provides detailed project instructions for drawer construction, highlighting techniques for mortise and tenon joinery, and leg tapering. He also speaks with North Bennet Street School president Miquel Gomez Inbanez, and receives an in-studio visit from Steve Brown, head of the School’s Cabinet and Furniture-Making department.
