I made this vanity table for my wife as a 10th anniversary gift. It is made of cherry, cherry plywood and birch plywood with blum full extension soft close slides. This project took a long time to complete but I learned a lot on this one.

Great design and workmanship. Don’t see many of these around nowadays. It’s such a useful and feminine piece of furniture you would think every woman would want one. And maybe they should.

Thanks for the comments. She is very happy with it. The next on the list is a stool to match it.

Beautiful!!

Two questions, if you please:

1) how is the glass held in, and … is it vulnerable if a ‘dresser’ side gets bumped?

2) since you—like me—live in Cold Winter Land—is there risk to the wood by parking this beautiful piece directly above a heating register?

I love it. Nicely done!!

Thank you,

NBeener

The glass rests on 2 cleats mounted to the sides. The mirror attaches on the back of both and holds them together. If the dresser got bumped very hard on one of the front inside corners it could twist enough to knock out the glass. I have hit it once fairly hard and I would have to be hit it twice as hard as I did to knock out the glass.

The heat register doesn’t seem to be a problem, it is fairly open under and infront of it.

The cherry has darkened a little with age and looks even better now.

Excellent modern take on a classic “need” from wives forever. Nice drawers; I hate my bathroom where the last 25% of the drawer is inaccessible! Can you envision any way to add lighting to such a design? I can imagine light coming up through the glass….

Have your say...
