The pine change table, made for Edward’s oldest daughter, measures 33″ wide x 28″ high x 17″ deep.

The curved tops on the sides were cut using a router trammel. Fluting in the end panels was accomplished with a handheld router using a combination of ½” straight bit and ¼” cove bit. The top shelf, bottom shelf and sides were brought together using stopped dados. The drawer pulls and runners are also made from pine. The drawers themselves were assembled using locking rabbet joints, which were cut on a table saw and resulted in an amazingly strong joint. To achieve a natural wood look Edward finished the project with four coats of a satin wipe on polyurethane.
