This vanity is all out of Poplar and painted white. Uv maple interiors on the base cabinet. The drawers are hard white maple and dovetailed with blumotion softclose undermount slides. Its finally completed except for the glass in the doors. I believe they finally decided on the kind of glass that is going in them though.

I’ve showed parts of this project already. I showed the doors as I was making them in a blog and the base of the vanity I posted earlier before it left the shop. Its a small area so it was hard to get great pictures. I hope I get a chance to go back and see it after the glass has been installed.

This was a fun project to do.
Thanks everyone for looking!

Les, this turned out to be a really nice addition to the bath. You executed a rally nice design on the doors and the bonnet and bow front doors give the vanity a unique look.

As always your work an inspiration.

That is fantastic!
I appreciate the precision and planning that goes into creating something this beautiful.
Curves in woodworking are a big jump in skill from straight lines.
Now, show us some compund curves :)

Another fantastic job Les. I appreciate all the great blogs you have done on curved cabinets and doors. Brenton, I will post a TV cabinet shortly that has some compound curves in the trim. It is definetly a skill to learn. I’m getting there thanks to Les. Thank you LES

It looks as good as I expected it to look, Les. But then I expect this kind of work from you always. LOL
