I built this Baby Changing Table for a lady, she found a picture of one she liked and asked me if I could build it….well, what was I supposed to say? She and her husband have painted it to match the decor in the baby’s room. It is made of Beech.

Did you make it knowing it would be painted? If so, how did this affect your choice of joints, materials, etc?

What kind of jointery am I see(or not seeing) on the third picture on the left where the molding meets the table top. Kinda looks like box jointing. Great craftsmanship, Sawhorse!

Thanks All, yes I knew it would be painted. That’s why I chose Beech as the wood, thought about Maple, but Beech mills-up alittle easier. The molding is secure to the table top with biscuits, I drew a line on the top and located where I wanted the biscuits, cut the slots, and only put a small amount glue on the biscuit itself to allow for some movement

Nice simple lines. Well made!

Not to be critical, but were you concerned about the lack of roll restrains? I made this one, similar in dimensions but with sides to prevent the baby from rolling off the top.

Thanks Don, yours looks good as well, but as I mentioned above, the couple I built it for wanted something specific and that is what I built for them. They were after all, the customer…..
