Walnut version of Changing table/Dresser previously built with white oak, this one for our second grandchild. Minor design differences as compared to previous build. Design from WoodCrafter magazine. Views show as changing table (with out pad) and as dresser. Drawer pulls are miss mitched in photos, but corrected before delivered. Walnut was purchased from sawmill and planned in shop. Basic case construction of Luan 3/4 plywood, side pannels of Birch 1/4 plywood. Pocket screw and glue assembly. Finish is clear polyurethane gloss.

Welcome to LJ – This is a nice unit, thanks for sharing.
How is the front “ledge” attached so it can be removed when not being used as a changing table?

I used three mortise and tenon’s unglued but tight fit. When the front “ledge” is removed the cabinet top covers the motise holes. I used 4 straps counter sunk into the base then use 4 screws to hold the top from moving. Thanks for the comment.
