We found out that we was pregnant again the other day but was not wanting to get our hopes up until we had the first ultrasound done and was told that this pregnancy was going good. Today we got that good news from the doctor so we went straight out to the baby store to start looking at the baby furniture to see what my wife would want. I told her that I wanted to build it myself that way it could stay in the family for generations hopefully. In the pictures below you will see what we have decided to go with, it will be built out of solid oak and oak plywood. I hove not decided if I will go with solid stock drawers with dovetails of box joints, or with half inch Baltic Birtch plywood. I have a little while to decide but please feel free to give me you input.

This is a shot of the changing table that goes on top of the dresser. We have already decided to add another compartment to the left side to match the right. There might be more changes to it before I get started building lol.

Congratulations on the soon to be new family member.

I really think it’s awesome to build something like this. Once completed this will instantly be a family heirloom.

Congrats Jason and good luck with the build
You saw my baby cradle and wanted to know the size. It is 18×36. Used a 18×36 cradle mattress my wife found on the wal-mart site as well with the bumper pad
