These are the His and Her bow front Vanities I completed recently. They are made from Sapele and mahoganey burl veneer panels. The flutes were made on the router table. The carvings were made by our in-house carver, including the feet. I made the moldings for the panels and doors on our shopfox molding machine. The other moldings were ordered and then applied. The finish is a stain and glaze with gold gilding on the moldings as highlights.

Sorry about the dates. I installed new batteries in my camera and forgot to set the date.

All comments and critiques are appreciated.

We have 5 people in our finishing department and they all do fantastic work. Sometimes I have to go in and help them out especially with glazing. But I would rather build than finish. But I do finish all my personal projects.

Very nice!

I would hate to have to do that twice but then again I hate doing anything twice.

Great job.
