The client had Mexican style bedroom furniture-A sleigh bed and dresser. They wanted nightstands made to match their existing early 1900's furniture. The Nightstands had to be 42" high to compensate for the unusually large and tall King size bed. Also, they requires that the the Nightstands be built using Mortise and Tenon construction to match the quality of their existing Furniture.
"This is heirloom furniture to be handed down so we want the new nightstands to match not only the material and finish but also the construction quality."
