The first of 2 pieces for the new baby’s room. Ella Paige is due to arrive in late February. A crib is in the works now, but this is a piece that is intended to grow with our daughter. I’ll start out as a chest of drawers with a changing table on top of it and as the need for diaper changing ends, the changing table top is easily removable.

The material is Sapele Mahogany with Hard Maple and Pine. I’ve used Sapele before and the grain is just amazing. If you want to read more about the process, I posted a couple of blog entries which you can read here—>

Hope you enjoy the photos.

Wow, love that sapele, I’ve been using it myself and the grain depth is amazing. Beautiful changing table/dresser. Great work.

I -LOVE- the color on this one. Is the cockbeading (terminology?) aroudn the drawers an applied moulding? Quite simply, that’s gorgeous!

I posted this in a blog a few days ago, but not as a “Project”.

The cockbeading is was applied after the drawer front was cut but before the joinery.

Thanks for the nice comments. I’ll be posting photos of the crib that goes with it as soon as I’m done with it.
