For my nightstand, I already have my pieces sketched up and designed other than the actual design that will be engraved into the pieces. As for my schedule:
April 6-9: Sourcing materials and finish the engraving design.
April 10-16: Laser cut and etch all materials that will be used. Begin to treat the wood.
April 17-23: Finish treating the wood, assemble pieces into the final product, and create a presentation.
