I am currently making the WOOD magazine changing table From Dec/Jan 2006 issue. I have seen quite a few examples of this on this site, so I thought some of you guys could help me. I am wanting to make the back out of 3/4” plywood instead of 1/4” because I have some readily available. To do this I was thinking of shrinking the depth of the carcass by 1/2” to keep the overall dimensions the same. I was also thinking of shrinking the depth of the drawers by 1/2” also to make sure they would fit in the smaller carcass. I don’t have the drawer slides yet, so my question is will the slides still work if the depth is 1/2” less? Thanks for any help. Nick

That should not be a problem, Nick. I am not familiar with the plan, but I would be surprised if the drawer glide was sized to go exactly to the back of the carcass. If it is, just get shorter glides.

You should be fine as long as theres enough room for a standard size glide.

Thanks guys. I actually finished the project last month. The standard size glide worked out just fine. I will post photos soon in the projects section.
