Just completed this changing table for my first grandchild. My daughter-in-law found a picture of one she liked on Pinterist. It is based off the “Rustic X DIY Changing Table” plan posted by It is made of 8/4 poplar. The bottom is two coats of semi-gloss latex applied with a foam roller. The top is finished with two coats of wax-free shellac/denatured alcohol, followed by Transtint Dark Walnut in denatured alcohol, followed by one coat of wax-free shellac/denatured alcohol, followed by General Finishes Gel Antique Walnut stain, followed by General Finishes Arm-R-Seal Semi-Gloss Topcoat. I generally followed the dimensions as posted by rougeengineer but modified the joinery significantly. The “X” was half lap and the sides were joined with loose tenons or dowels. The piece that holds the changing pad was mitered and glued using biscuits and is held in place with screws from the bottom. In the future, this piece can come off and holes filled with dowels to be used as a standard console table. Although there are a few flaws that most will never notice, overall, I’m pleased with the outcome. I really enjoyed making it and my son and daughter-in-law seemed to really like it.
