Finished the bathroom vanity this week. Like most projects I do, the bones came together quickly but I’ve kind of dragged my feet on the final details. Went through a number of design iterations for the top and for the doors. Seriously debated my choice of using a solid wood top for the vanity in the most punishing environment for wood in the house. Top is done with 4 coats of Minwax “Tung Oil” and 9 coats of wipe on poly…hopefully will be enough to preserve it for a few years.
Solid hickory for all the parts that show, birch ply for the unseen bits.

Ah ha, the vanity surfaces, with a wood top indeed, very attractive. Will be interesting to see how that particular finish works out. I remember the discussion around that problem well. Keep us posted for reference, if you would.

Thanks guys!
Jim: I give it about a year before the top starts to show its intolerance to the bathroom but hopefully I’ll be wrong…

yeah, I saw that too, a bit unusual as nothing really unique or extravagant about this project

Very nice !!! But what’s the story with the sink? Did I miss something? Maybe I was sick that day.

Too bad that the remodel budget didn’t allow for an outlet cover plate. :(
