First changing table dresser built for my first grand child. Construction design came from WoodCrafter magaizine. Constructed of white oak and birch plywood. Picutured as a changing table without the pad to lay baby on. Front curved piece is removable to place solid top once it is ready to be used as a dresser. Finish is cherry with gloss polyuethane. Pocket screw and glue constructon. Drawer pulls are made from African Mahogany.

Staggering work! Brilliant choice of finish. And oh , when did you start working the cabinet?

Thank you. I was trying to match the finish of the baby bed. This one is aproximately 5 years old. My grandson is now 5. The walnut cabinet also posted is newer as our newest granddaughter is just now 1. This was the first one and took me about 7 months to build as my work space was smaller than I have now. I had a one car garage and I had to move stuff every time I was to work. I would work about 2 hours an evening and on the weekends when I had the time. I learned a lot from this project and made a lot of mistakes. The basic case was the panneled sides and plywood bottom, top and middle making shelfs if you will. The front is attached as is the back using pocket screws so the plywood is not seen unless the drawers are removed. Oh and the sanding… it took for ever! :-)

Well I guess all the effort is worth . You finished a really good craft and this is something that you must be proud of . We always make mistakes while making our projects , not all first attempts are perfect , even second , third so on. But the point here is you’ve done it perfectly and look at that output, it is staggering.
