Here is a changing table that will also serve as a small dresser when the baby gets older. Its made out of Walnut, and the vertical panels are walnut veneer. I choose not to dye the veneered panels just to add a little bit of contrast. The finish is a witches brew with 3 coats applied, then rubbed out with 0000 steel wool and wax applied.
Thanks for looking.

Hi Dave,

This is a gorgeous changing table. I like the contrast between the walnut and veneer.

Thanks for the post.

It looks like the grain between the top two drawers (left and right) line up as if from one piece of lumber. I like the way that looks.
