Weekend Project: How to Make a Concrete + Walnut Nightstand

Two visually striking materials – molded concrete and live-edge walnut – get combined to make this industrial/modern/awesome-looking nightstand project, complete with both visible and hidden storage.    And! Get this: Dude used LEGOs to make the mold for the concrete shape. Jup, it’s true: 

The drawer “slides” are integrated right into the mold, so you just build a box, add the nice hardwood face, and slip it in. 

See the full how-to at Homemade Modern. Even if you don’t make this exact project, there’s lots of clever technique here to inspire.
