Who builds baby changing tables?
The baby changing tables you find stacked at Walmart are often manufactured by large conglomerates in China. Have you seen all the recall notices lately? These companies are looking at their bottom line and don’t mind trampling over the little ones. On the opposite side is the home woodworker. You are likely to build a more personal, functional, high-quality baby changing table—and have loads of fun doing so!
Woodworkers making baby changing tables could be
- Mothers or fathers building a usable and memorable bedroom staple for their first child
- Grandparents constructing a family heirloom to pass to future generations
- Friends and neighbors chipping in for a unique baby shower gift
- Entrepreneurs establishing a lucrative baby changing table business

Should you build from free plans or paid plans?
Whether to build baby changing tables from free woodworking plans or from paid woodworking plans is a question to answer before you start.
Some experienced woodworkers like free baby changing table plans because they (1) are free (woohoo!), (2) usually don’t include extraneous details, and (3) provide ideas for design-it-yourself projects.
Paid baby changing table plans may be a better option for beginning woodworkers because the paid plans often (1) have support through the seller included, (2) offer step-by-step instructions to help you in every situation, and (3) list tips to avoid expensive mistakes, overpayments, and hair-pulling!

Why build instead of buy?
Building baby changing tables is not for everyone. If you hate woodworking or can’t commit to a project you start, I suggest buying your baby changing table. It’s a quicker and less stressful solution.
If you decide, however, that you don’t want a run-of-the-mill baby changing table that everyone else has, then go with a baby changing table plan.
Baby changing table plans can save you money and add a distinctive look to your nursery. Don’t like the style of the drawers or the size of the top? Change them. Don’t like the recommended paint color? Pick a color that fits your decor better. Baby changing table plans are completely customizable, unlike the ready-to-assemble changing tables sold at stores.
The best reason to build baby changing tables
Perhaps the best reward from building from baby changing table plans is that you make something you can call your own. You can be proud of what you create. YOU made that.
Since few people have the interest, time, or skill to build baby changing tables (and most people don’t even think about it), you are embarking on a cool and unique mission. When the children grow up, they will be able to tell people that you made that furniture just for them.
When you build baby changing tables, I always suggest burning in your name and date or adding a plaque with a special message. Make it an heirloom, part of your own family time capsule!
