Here’s a double bow front vanity divided a flat bank of drawers. The radius is 30” diameter. Constructed out of hard maple with UV maple interiors. Under mount blum motion slides. Finish is paint and glaze and a top coat.

Thanks for looking!

I am in awe. I have no idea how that is done, but I sure do appreciate that somebody does.

Nice work! You make it look easy…

Do you bandsaw those stretchers and fronts out, or are you bending/laminating them?
