Finally finished this vanity for my daughters house. As part of our rehab project we were going to purchase a vanity from a big box. But after opening 4 boxes and all were damaged from 3 different stores, I decided to built one myself. Final cost was about the same except for my labor. I guess I can discount the labor for the fun and learning experience. The design is based on a Kraftmaid design. This was my first successfully painted project with hvlp.
Made entirely from poplar stock which started a as s2s except for the plywood parts. Joined the face frame with pocket screws, used mortise and tenons to join the door frames, and cut the drawer dovetails with a router and my new Liegh D4R jig. The Liegh was a wonderfully huge improvement on the old Craftsman plastic jig I had used many years ago. The project has given me the experience and confidence I wanted to make a vanity for the half bath in my house from hardwoods in the near future.
The soft close door slides were easy to install and work great.
