Making the nightstand topStuff always seems to fall off of nightstands, so I wanted to add some raised edges around the top of this nightstand. But I also wanted to round the corners because of kids bumping into them. This presented a challenge. I settled for 45 degree corners to make it easier instead to make it easier.
I started by cutting a 45° corner off the two front corners.
My initial idea had been to glue the long edges on first, then cut the corner off and glue the 45 degree piece on and trim it flush with the long edges, but that would not have looked as good and with the short trim piece outside on the corner, would have made it more likely to break off.
