The top is 5/8 plywood edged with poplar and is just set in place for the photo. The splashes are loose and the sink cutout is yet to be done. After installation the top is to get ceramic tile.
The box is constructed of 3/4 birch veneer plywood; the raised panel frames, base and fluting are poplar; and all the raised panels are MDF. Since it was to be painted, I didn’t want the panels moving and breaking the seams. Acrylic caulk was used on all the joints to make it seamless after spraying the vinyl sealer, the surfacer, and water white acrylic lacquer.
Hinges are european style and the knobs are solid brass.
I enjoy making “furniture quality” cabinerty much more than just boxes with doors.
