This Changing Table and Dresser is part of a set. I completed the 3-1 bed last month and got started on the dresser right away. I am very please with the way it turned out. Of course it has the small mistakes that I can only see or notice, but overall it is very solid.

The top is a little cupped and I really wish I had a planer that wide to make it perfectly flat. But I think I will make the next top For the chest of drawers in two separate pieces, plane them and then join them to make one solid top.

one word, belt sander. Oops, that is two words. I use a PC belt sander across the grain the flatten glued up boards. Then, with the grain to get rid of the scratches.

That is a beautiful piece of furniture!

Very nice design and execution.

What are the different woods you used?

Where did you get your plans? I’ve got about 3 weeks to build a changing table for second-born and should probably get started. I’m quite fond of the drawers and shelving that goes along with yours.

Nice job on the changing table. That will still be useable as a dresser if the countertop becomes full of other baby stuff. The plans are from Wood Magazine December/January 2006/2007 Issue. Here is a link: Double-duty changing table/dresser

On this project I used all Maple. There is some Maple Plywood used as well. The Difference in color is simply the choice of stain. I used Basic Minwax stains. I chose “Weathered Oak” which is basically natural with some grey tint that accents the grain and gives a very slight weathered look, the Red is “Red Chestnut”. I used light covering of the red chestnut stain to keep it light to match the bight natural maple.

Thank you all for the comments, I really enjoy reading them.
