I have mentioned in a couple of my projects that I have a grandchild coming soon. Well soon is Christmas day. I said I would build changing table and crib. Nothing like waiting till the last minute!
The top is 54” long and 24”-28” wide slab of poplar. It’s 2” thick. Most of the base is beetle pine. I tried to find some standout pieces color wise. The base is 48” wide, 22” deep and 35” tall. Built to future parents specs. The cabinet doors have red cedar set in beetle pine. Once again this was taxing my skill level. The top is bar top epoxy. Getting better about not making a big mess.
The idea for this is that after it’s job is done as a changing table it can be used for other things. I still need to figure out a temporary rail for around the pad that won’t damage the epoxy coating. I am thinking something with suction cups. Suggestions are welcome.
Total height is 37”. It’s very heavy. I used wooden drawer slides. I have got to quit making my drawers with so tight of tolerances. Can be a pain fitting them right. If you see any big mistakes tell me. Not sure I could change it now, but would like to know for future projects.
Thanks for looking
