GM, I have a small nightstand with 4 drawers & puzzle-jointing. I do not know the age,style or value. If you could please help identify this nightstand. No markings.
Answer I have never heard the term puzzle jointing. I love it and from now on this is the term i will use when i see a joint that is not dovetailed but is done in this configuration. you have started something!!
If this is a stand alone night stand and not a part of a previous vanity -- if both sides look the same then it is a stand alone stand-- it is from 1910-20-- the top drawer being burl walnut veneer.
style would be called colonial revival and would sell retail at 125.

Thank you for your fast response. LOL the term puzzle jointing I didn't make up, I searched out different joints of wood & found it.
