I designed this combination changing table/dresser as a gift for my wife’s first grandson. It features: an air-dried maple frame stained to match the child’s crib; bird’s eye veneered panels and drawer fronts; and, a live-edge walnut top. The finish was hemp oil, followed by a few coats of urethane for added durability.

Full of admiration for the piece – but it has a weird look on my monitor. Initially I can see only the top two drawer levels – as I scroll down, the chest appears to rotate anti-clockwise. Very strange effect!
At first, I thought that you had somehow created a 3D image.

Very nice design and build. I love it, and I’m sure it will be cherished for several generations!

That is a fantastic piece of furniture.
I nearly missed it and only saw it while skimming through projects.
It really stood out.
That is a real show piece.
Is it your own design?
Thanks for sharing
Jamie

Jamie,

This is another of my own designs. It’s unfortunate that when I glued it up that I didn’t pay more attention to how square it was. That simple error cost me several hours to overcome…

That is a sweet changing table. Contrasting textures & colors with a Asian feel. You have a good eye!
