Top of the morning to you all. This is the changing table I built for my son, born 3 weeks ago. One of my favorite projects to date due to the sentimental nature of the built. Took me about 2 weeks to complete working in the evening after my daughter went to bed. Made from “cabinet-grade” plywood and poplar from a local big box. Finished with Zinnser OB Primer, Rustoleum acrylic WB paint, and Minwax Polycrylic. The primer was rolled on with foam roller, then sanded smooth. The paint and top coat were sprayed, thinned with Flotrol through my HF “purple gun”. The trim around the top was done on my router table with a chamfer bit, glued and nailed with 18g nailer. Legs and aprons were assembled with pocket holes (Kreg jig). A little putty, a LOT of sanding and voila!
This piece was completed literally 3 days before he showed up, but he was a week ahead of schedule, so I don’t feel so bad about the timing. Big hit with the family since I always get the “I still can’t believe you can do that”

Thanks for looking

Beautiful work! There’s a piece that won’t be just given to Goodwill once he outgrows it. Who knows how many generations it might serve? And also…congratulations!!
