This is a changing table that I designed and built for my new born niece. It is made from pine and pine plywood. The tops are solid pine, glued up. The carcass is 3/4 ply. The drawer fronts are also solid pine. This is the first dresser type project i have made. The coffee table I made had plans from Woodsmith mag. This changing table was 100% mine. It is the first time I used biscuts, drawer slides, face frame and a swinging door with hinges. I gave the changing table to my brother-in-law and he applied the stain and poly. He used a SUPER dark ebony stain to match the baby’s crib and applied 7 coats of poly. The swinging door was still drying in the main pic, so it is missing. It took forever to get pictures from him, so if I wanted to post this, it was now or never. Hope you guys enjoy.

Great job! I love working with Pine. It’s very forgiving, unlike our parents…lol!

I have a REALLY bad back and can hardly move 90% of the time. Building this was a MASSIVE PAIN IN THE ARSE. No more than an hour of work at a time. Hearing comments like these make the hard work and pain pay off.

Have your say...
