This one was done in rift sawn White oak with a min wax american chestnut oil stain and satin lac. Third pic is showing its new home in the customers newly expanded bath.
Granite top coming soon.
Im calling this one floating because it is only attached to the back wall, and does not engage end walls or floor.

If its floating, what did you do to support the weight of a solid Granite top? The backing of the cabinet seems no sturdier, than the normal french cleat system for mounting cabinets.

I ask, because I had a floating bathroom cabinet collapse, when an electrician put his weight on it to reach a cealing lamp. The cleat on the backwall just splintered and shattered.

Nice looking cabinets btw

Beautiful cabinet. I like those drawer pulls without pulls system. I prefer that way also on my cabinet.

That sure is a nice clean design and well done.

Thanks for the comments guys

Sheissareck…...this is not a French cleat system. What your unable to see is the dozen or so glue blocks along with the forty plus screws and the 12 five inch lag bolts

This one is done in such a manner that that first moment of movement is immediately transferred to the wall

Top was installed this morning along with surface lavoratorys . Held nicely

Ivan….those pull rebates were quite simple…..just cove cut from the back side once profile was patterned

Enjoy the journey JB

Have your say...
