Thanks to some great help from the Lumberjocks forums, I finally finished the changing table! It is poplar, baltic birth plywood, stained with Kona in an attempt to match a store-bought crib we haven’t received yet. The joinery is dowels, pocket screws and the side frames are my first attempt at mortise and tenon joints. The intaglio of the drawers is bright pink. I turned the feet on a mini-lathe which my wife got me for Fathers Day soon after we found out she was pregnant. The pulls are from Etsy; the baskets, changing pad and liners are from Pottery Barn Kids (as well as the owl). The little lady is due November 18th, on my wife’s birthday no less, and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome our first child into the world. The next project will be a set of toy wood tools for our mini lady woodworker!

PS 4 coats of wipe-on poly to protect the table from Mother Nature.

Good job. I’ve been debating undertaking the same task as we’re expecting our first in a few months as well. Congratulations and enjoy the table.

Soon enough you’ll be very familiar with that changing table. Congrats on the new addition and congrats on a great build. It’ll kinda be like your new work bench ;)
