For the Do-It-Yourself people who have children, this is an appealing project to think about. Because parenthood is a very tedious job, all essential things need to be in hand from a short distance, especially when changing diapers. It’s even harder when there are multiple children in the house. Here is a way to store everything needed conventionally and fashionably: five drawers in one table, with a height of 32 ¼ inches, a length of 44 ¾ inches, and a width of 19 ¼ inches.


1 1/2 sheets of 3/4″ plywood (4′ x 8′)

1/2 or 1 sheet beadboard

7 – 1″ x 2″ x 8′ boards (actual dimensions 3/4″ x 1 1/2″)

2 – 1″ x 3″ x 8′ boards (actual dimensions 3/4″ x 2 1/2″)

28 feet of panel cap molding

8 feet cove molding

4 ‘feet’

4 leg top plate

1 1/4″ pocket hole screws

1 1/4″ wood screws

1″ brad nails

wood glue


wood filler

5 pair of 18″ drawer slides

5 cup handles

2 knobs


clear wax

Note that there are a lot of materials and wood cuts that will be needed to make this dresser. The dimensions of each piece of wood and their exact size from corner-to-corner – attention to detail is key – vary, as well as well as how much of it that is needed. Besides the wood, there is the amount of cap molding, nails, wood glue, sandpaper, wood filler, cup handles, knobs, leg top plates, hole screws, and paint. The diagrams to specifics from end-to-end should be written down. (Key phrase: attention to detail.)

The difficulty level is probably advanced because this is not a one-day thing. This is a multi-day project with careful measurements, as well as handling when moving the freshly built changing table from woodshop to child’s bedroom. Do-It-Yourself projects come with risk and this is a big one because it is time consuming. But, if up for the challenge, it can finish out as a wonder piece of furniture homemade and perfect to fill up with diapers, baby wipes, blankets, and other baby products.
