I kind of thought that this table might be a nice addition to the church cry room. the new mothers really went wild when I brought it to the church. It is made of reclaimed douglas fir. I got a real bargain when a friend bought some old church pews made of this lumber. he resold it to me. this was 5/4 without knots and 14ft. long. some was 11 1/2” wide and some was 9” wide needless to say I’ve had a good time making a lot of different things. Anyway the tablt is pretty much as you see it. I had to run it through the planer to size it then, on to the table saw, then the router table to make the styles and rails, then glue up the top with bisquits after that it was mostly assembly.

Excellent design! As a daddy who still needs the use of one of these, I can appreciate all the storage included, and the safety ledging around where the changing pad will go.

Well done!

Beautiful workmanship, design and thoughts for your fellow man. The diaper changing stand really looks good. I also like the fact that it’s recycled lumber – wish I could run across a few of those old church pews, at a reasonable price.

Definitely a nice piece of furniture, better than I’ve seen in a lot of churches. No wonder the ladies went wild.

We were given some lumber from a pew. Rather than cutting it up, we built a bench out of it… so basically, someone took it apart and we put it back together again :)

cajunpen you might try ebay. That is where my son found 17 soild oak church pews.The church was updating thier pews and wanted to sell the old ones. He got more than enough to build a whole new set of kitchen cabinets and had a lot left over.

I cannot take credit for the design of this piece, only the work. I seen a picture of this and decided to duplicate it.
