I wan to make a small night stand with a drawer. I want to make the side of the stand round, but I don't know how. Can you help or direct me to a video that show me how to do it
I'll post some pics so you can see what I mean. I also want to use real wood as well

- Cut several copies of the curved face from 3/4" material, then glue them together for the depth.
- Build a form to bend the shape around, use bending plywood layers to get the thickness, veneer the faces after gluing some matching hardwood on the front and back.
- Cooper or barrel stave as mentioned by Cabinetman above.
- Glue up wood until you have enough thickness to cut the curves out of. Hope you have a bandsaw with enough throat depth. If not, do it in sections that will fit then glue them together.

Bent lamination's-Thin layers of wood glued together in a form- pretty easy. Just takes time.
