« Part 3: Vanity and Mirrow Part 4 of Rustic Vanity series Part 5: Half Baked Vanity »

A good day working. Did some assembly, but a lot more disassembly. I’m using 32 mm cup hinges on the medicine chest. Got those drilled out along with the shelf pegs. Glued up the boxes for the medicine chest. Put it all in one big pile!

Made a trip into town to get finishing supplies. I’m all ready to spray tomorrow. This is the canyon I had to cross to get my materials.

It’s been my in my back yard most my life so I just take it for granted. I remember my grandfather taking me to dump garbage over the edge. We don’t do that anymore.

Dennis – You have a very cool backyard! That is a great photo. I’d like to see more of the shop. . . I am looking forward to seeing the finished vanity and medicine chests.

There’s no vanity in that pile of rocks. What a great winter picture. Looks like there’s still ice on the river, or is that just white water?

Dennis – thanks for the prompt to check out your website. I like your work! I especially like how you combine different materials. I also enjoyed the paintings. This is perhaps the single best reason to be a member of the Lumberjock community. I am so impressed with the depth of talent and wonderful work on display. Despite all the talent, everyone is so supportive and sharing. Please keep the projects coming!

White water in the river. Ice along the canyon walls.

Dennis, I just checked out your webpage… I am so humbled. Beautiful work. Less than a year ago I started doing “rustic” furniture. I have a long way to go…
Great work!

Hi Dennis;
—-what a great shop you have in your backyard!

Also I noticed that right in the middle of that bottom picture, there is a ‘rock sculpture formation’. I don’t think I will show this one to my wife, since she’s all-ready dreaming aloud about granite rock gardens. No telling what kind of list she would give me if she saw this one.

I like this project you are doing with the vanity and how you are developing the plot of the story as you work. Also like the photos that you are posting and what a wonderful title you have posted, ”Vanity In A Pile”; I believe I hear a poet in you also….

GODSPEED,
Frank

isn’t it interesting how we can so easily take our surroundings (and our skills) for granted.
What some of us wouldn’t do to be able to look out over that landscape every day!!

Pillar falls IS why I own a boat! Love that place. Worlds most beautiful 24 inch water fall.

24” waterfall?

How about this one? Located in Wells Grey Provincial Park in BC. My dad and I used to go fly fishing here every year. 143 meters – 470’

Or this one just around the corner; Dawson Falls. 18 meters – 60’
