Changing Table for new Grandson….on the way! My first at making something from a drawing. I added 10” to the length of a chest from Woodsmith Magazine. I learned a lot from this. I recommend it for newbes like myself. Try to follow the plan and construction as close as possible.
I learned that plywood is not flat. I also learned that plywood is not necessarly 3/4”. It really messes up your construction if you have close tolerences. I made drawers with dovetails as called for. I found out that making flush mount faces is a real challange. I found out that your daughter can pick a color from a color chart, and you can have it converted to an enamel paint at the Big Box. It really works well wiith the small foam rollers. I also noticed she did not close top drawer for pic :)
