The nightstand was constructed using 5/4 cherry lumber, 5/4 sapele lumber, 1x pine for the drawers, and 1/4" plywood for the drawer bases. Pocket hole/glue joinery was used for the lumber panels and frame. The drawers were constructed with a dado insert for the plywood at the bottom and pocket holes at the sides. Everything was sanded to 220 grit and finished with 3 coats of danish oil to pop the grain and keep a natural color, followed by 2 coats of satin lacquer for added protection. The face of the frame was routed with a chamfer bit to give the drawers and top shelf a recessed look.
