« Part 1: Project Concepts Part 2 of Project Concepts series Part 3: Jewelry mirror »

Hello and thankyou for visiting my blog.

This project came about when my wife got pregnant and got tired of sitting on the floor in front of a tall mirror to put on her makeup. She asked me to do it for months before she got pregnant but never got around to it. Now it is getting to a point where she really needs it.

I have seen several vanities on the internet and when she asked me to build one, this is the style I envisioned on building. It is a standard vanity table with queen anne legs. This was going to be my first attempt at building a drawer and I was wanting to try out some new joinery techniques. I was going to use this as in excuse to buy a dovetail jig, but that idea got quickly shot down. Then I decided to do finger joints. And to do that i was going to have to build a jig cut the joints. She said that would take too long and I told her you can’t rush my work. In the end I couldn’t find my queen anne legs in my price range and this project was starting to take too long. So she just wanted me to throw something together with the wood that i have on hand. So I built her a birch plywood vanity for the time being. I dont have a picture of it right now but I will take one and upload it here soon. I am still planning on building this vanity table. But now I have more time to design it and work on my jigs.

Thanks for viewing my blog. Any feed back is greatly appreciated.
