This changing table was based on the plan from the woodstore.net. I ended up changing the top to maple plywood with rounded corners and banded it with maple banding. It’s finished in 6 coats of real tung oil split 50% with citrus solvent as I wanted it to be non-toxic and not off gas anything nasty. I like the way that finish looks and ease of application but I’m not sure if it will be great for a relative hard-use piece of furniture. I actually started it before my first son was born but re-prioritized other projects so many times along the way it ended up on the back burner until my second son was about to be born! It’s far from perfect but, one glaring, maddening mistake I made with one leg that will haunt me but it is was it is. I learned a bunch from this project and felt like I took another step in my growth as a woodworker, on to the next project!

I would have probably gone with epoxy but your way is probably less toxic … well done!
