As a result of a knee replacement, trotting-off to the bathroom at three a.m. was to be avoided. However the storage capacity of the bladder placed a limit on this declaration of independence. I considered placing an empty one gallon water jug on the night table but was concerned that it might be knocked to the floor. Placing the jug on the floor adjacent to the bed was also not desirable because reaching for it was a challenge. My solution was the design and construction of a mini night table. This 10-1/2 inch high unit was constructed from ½ inch square dowels and a small amount of ¼ inch thick plywood.  The plans for this project are free and available on a compact disk. However to avoid requests for the disk from casual readers, I will swap the disk with the recorded drawings plus a computer program that I wrote for calculating cross-brace lengths and cut-off angles, for a blank disk sent to me, William Rynone, Ph.D., P.E., via Pony Express at Rynone Engineering, Inc., P.O.
