Here is a partial recycled wood project. I built this dresser and mirror for someone who bought one of the baby cribs I build. I have built a good many projects and refinished a lot of furniture for this lady, so when she asked me to build her a baby changing table for her expecting daughter. I knew I could not build a regular changing table that no one uses after the baby learns to use the potty. So I came up with the idea to build something that could be used for years to come. I made the dresser out of oak plywood, solid oak from old oak beams I have, and some cherry from a old fallen tree in the customer yard. I sprayed it with four coats of satin lacquer. She and her daughter loved it. She bought a pad with high sides for the top.

What a great changing table. It looks wonderful. I love the selection of wood and your talents make a piece that will be around for many family generations. Thanks for sharing your talents.

Well done, looks great – but like I said about the canes posted by someone earlier – Glad I don’t need one :-)). But it is a great looking Changing Table.

Hi all, thanks for the kind remarks. I can’t stress enough how glad I am I don’t need one of these myself and built it for someone else. I have 4 kids ages 3, 5, 14, 17 and love them all but hope the next baby in my house will be many years from now and a grand child.
