Here’s a changing table/sideboard that I designed and built for some friends of mine. It was my first attempt at doing anything arts &crafts. I used the Jeff Jewitt finish recipe on the quatersawn white oak. Let’s just say I had to do it a couple of times before I got it to the point where it was even acceptable. The darker parts are quartersawn walnut and the “inlay” on the top is birdseye maple. I couldn’t find any hinges that I liked so I decided to make them. It was a lot harder than it looked but I like the overall look of them. The pulls are also shop-made of the same qs walnut. This piece also incorporates the obligatory secret compartment. The space between the doors pulls out to reveal a small space to keep trinkets or other things in. The compartment is locked in place by a small pin built secretly into the slide frame underneath. It’s almost seamless. All-in-all I’m pretty happy with the whole piece.
