When I found out that my wife was pregnant I immediately decided that I wanted to build a dresser for my new child. I wanted it to be something that they would/could use for generations. My wife wanted something that we could use as a changing table, so that dictated the height. By the time I actually got started on the project, my wife had already purchased a birch crib (she wouldn’t let me make that – something about the fact that she wouldn’t need it anymore by the time I finished it). So I decided to build it out of Birch – my first time working with that wood. The moulding technique was inspired by an article I read in Fine Woodworking. My goal was to use as much joinery as possible and the minimum amount of hardware. I was very happy with the way it turned out. I hope you enjoy it.
I can’t believe I don’t have any pictures of it finished. I’ll see if I can take one soon.
