As our eZine readers are likely aware, I recently made a youth-sized dresser for my first grandchild. I got into the project late in the pregnancy, because our large extended family had been searching yard sales and antique stores for an appropriate vintage dresser. We felt certain that the perfect piece would come along at the right price, but in this we were mistaken.
While many projects can be somewhat timeless, furniture for babies & children may lose some of its usefulness after time. This reader found a great way to extend the functionality of his work.
I made this changing table for the baby of my brother-in-law and later I made the top that he could add on to modify to a dresser.
So the furniture has a second life, and maybe his daughter will change her baby on the same changing table.
Made of yellow birch.
