Hi there, I found a baby changing table that has two's great for the project. …the highest part is 36 1/2…the lower part is 32-33. Should I raise it a little …or should I leave it

Make it yourself thanks to woodprix plans. I think it's the best way to learn how to build it in the cheapest way.

Very nice, but I agree with other posters here. Casters to help move it about and bring up the height. As it's still going to be rather low I'd just opt for it to be a storage cabinet. Nice job!

isabel yau says:

Did you add boards to the two bottom drawer spaces?

Jerry Burger says:

You should have added caster wheels to finish it of, a real kitchen iland

Leslie Bryan says:

Nice but too low

P. consuela banana H. says:

All it needed was a piece to cover the back and wheels.
