I had a few goals with this one.
1. I wanted my wife to like it
2. I wanted to maximize storage
It seems like vanities usually have a lot of wasted space, but since most items that are stored in them are relatively small, I tried to maximize the drawer space, even if they were shallow or skinny. Drawers are all funky to avoid the plumbing and sink, but fit a lot of small stuff. The bottom drawer is double height for taller items.
Oak veneer plywood for the carcase, glued and screwed, Solid oak face frame (glued and biscuits), pre-finished maple drawer boxes, glued and through dowels with black edge banding, oak veneer mdf drawer faces with solid oak edging. The drawer faces are our initials “J” and “T” (it kinda just worked that way when I was drawing it in Sketch-up and I thought it was kinda funny)
The finish is india ink, two coats of seal-coat (sprayed) and 4- 6 coats (sprayed) of varithane spar urethane, satin gloss.
The woodworking is finished, but I have to still install it, after patching some drywall and painting.
Thanks for looking.
