The bathroom furniture is made for my daughter and son in law and adapted to a relative small room. Not to bee dominate in the small room the countertop of the furniture is gently curved. The appearance will then be a little softer.
The furniture is made in white oak, with base-cabinets made of baltic birch.
The finish is one layer of boiled linseed oil, 3 layers of shellac and on the top 3 layers of satin varnish.
The base units are made of 19mm baltic birch. This plywood is very sturdy, with one good side. Here they are ready for gluing up, with slits for biscuits.
Ready made white oak for face frames Those are 50 mm with a thickness of 20 mm.
The base cabinets are glued up with biscuits.
More base units.
Base units with face frames assembled are test installed on a 15 cm high base.
Base units in both ends has got a solid oak end panel, and since the unit in the middle are somewhat deeper than the end units, is the front part of sidewall covered with an oak panel.
One of the base units have a curved cut out in the front to make space for the sink.
The inside walls of the base units are finished with shellac.
Doors get their finish
The countertop is made of 35 mm thick oak glued together, and is gently curved in the front. At the rear edge a board with a routed slot at the top to receive the mirror.
Space for the sink is made with a jigsaw.
The work with the top is started. It will have the same curved front as the countertop.
The holes for the lightning is done.
And the mouldings are glued in place.
Top an countertop is treated with boiled linseed oil, shellac and varnish.
The boiled linseed oil will pop up the pattern in the white oak, the shellac will give the wood a nice warm colour and at last the varnish will protect the wood from moisture and water.
Here is the side cabinets under work.
All units are ready and the test mounting looks good.
Hardware in antique brass mounted an doors and drawers. Self closing hinges in the same style..
The drawers are using center-mount slides.
Doors in side cabinets has frosted pane and there is tree glass shelves in each cabinet. Back wall inside the cabinets is made in solid oak.
Down lights is mounted together wit outlet for hairdryer/shaver.
And installed in the bathroom.
The space was unfortunately to small to have a complete picture.
