Today we are turning slabs into finished furniture; two resin river nightstands to be exact. However, there is more to these than meets the eye. Our concept was to create nightstands with plenty of storage, that were sleek from the outside, and highly functional without the need for a chord pileup ontop. Here is what we came up with!
This build uses almost every digital tool in our Makerspace, along with plenty of "traditional" woodworking and a resin pour for good measure. For these pieces of furniture we used the CNC Router, Laser Cutter, and 3D Printer. The finished nightstands have 4 hidden USB ports each, a disable Resin Night Light Table Top (done with Total Boat Epoxy), and two wireless charging stations. Enjoy!
Our good friend Ashley Minney came to visit the Makerspace and helped us out a bit with these. She's fantastic. Go check out her channel HERE.
