Here is this changing table that I made for a client. I made this using 3/4” walnut plywood for everything but the drawer box. It is a relatively simple construction and on this job I learned the importance of making sure that everything is square including any jigs that you make to use as well. Finishing this piece was pain due in part to walnut plywood not really matching the solid walnut crib that I made as well, so I got a crash course on mixing my own dyes and stains to make it appear as it is solid walnut.

You did a fine job matching colors. The ply looks very much like the real thing. Nice build.

It’s beautiful, but you gotta talk to that architect. Being a baby who has fallen off a changing table – the kid will roll off at the first chance he/she has. Unless the top comes off and you put the baby in the box?

Great job on the changing table. You matched the colors really well. The Architect has a lot to be desired about designing baby furniture!
