This Changing table and Dresser I made for the lady who works for me who just had a baby. I wanted to put something on top that would keep the little guy from rolling off the top. I tried to match the color of his crib/bed, so I used one coat of Minwax Dark Walnut with a coat of Minwax Red Mahoany on top, with about 6 coats of poly sprayed on, rubbed out in between. I was pretty happy wit the results, and so was momma.
The 4th picture has a board from the bed/crib that I was trying to match. It’s not exact, but it’s in the neighborhood. This was a fun build. The hardest part was installing the Enormous drawers, about 33×24 deep.
The top piece, sides/shelf, is made of solid red oak, with mitered corners and the shelf is dadoed in.
There is a lot of play between the slides when the drawers are that big. Thanks for looking.
