Launching a new category here: Do-It-Yourself. Starting from a simple woodworking project, this is how to make a baby’s changing table.
1. You create/obtain some beautiful drawings (here made at the back of an envelope in a cafeteria):
2.You get some wood (I used some planed sawn timber and hard MDF plate that I got from the local Bauhaus store).
3. You collect the tools needed and start the job (a good workbench is a nice element in this).
4. Getting the rounded edges can even be done with the help of some round jar covers.
5. Then just some careful application of coping saw and file…
6. Drill can also help as a mechanical screwdriver, but that tool is not necessary.
7. I used screws and then glue to make the construction solid.
8. Grinding needs to be done both before application of paint, as well as between paint layers to get an even surface.
9. If there is too windy outside you might need to find an inside place to do the finishing layer of paint.
10. One of the finishing touches: these rubber pieces help to stop and secure the changing table to position.
11. There you are: place the foam mattress in position, and the changing table is ready.
