Getting Started in Woodworking: Build a Shaker Nightstand
The new season of Getting Started in Woodworking is back with a brand-new step-by-step instructional video to guide you through the process of building a Shaker Nightstand. This time around, Fine Woodworking editor Asa Christiana and FineWoodworking.com web producer Ed Pirnik will help you navigate through a variety of woodworking and furniture making techniques that will expand your woodworking repertoire.
In this eight-part series, Ed and Asa begin at the lumberyard, with tips on how to purchase rough boards. Further lessons cover everything from milling your own lumber and cutting tapered legs-to joining your nightstand pieces together with simple, strong dowels. You’ll even learn how to create your own beautiful tabletops, add a shelf, and even tackle a professional oil finish with ease.
Getting Started in Woodworking now lives on our sister site StartWoodworking.com, so be sure to head on over there to check it out.

Nice start. Looking forward to the rest of the series.
The StartWoodworking.com site is nice too.
As always, under your leadership, FWW has had the best woodworking videos on the web. This looks like another winner!
One suggestion? Rather than 'dribble out' episode by episode over weeks, how about posting them all at once? We know they are already 'in the can' - so why not? Like the recent Trestle Table - where I was really pleased I could watch the entire series - and rewatch it - at one time.
Put more ads in if you must - but please do post all at one time, OK?
