the only new item is the yellow pine table top.
construction was lap joint,biscuit, miter,and butt joint.
thanks Dad,.

Great use of space August. You gave your wife one heck of a space to get all dolled up in. Good work buddy!

A very smart build, August!
So, that’s how I get my wife to keep all her stuff in ONE spot! :)

I love the chest for a seat. more storage space?

Nice job Auggie. Looks like the wife is all moved in and no doubt likes it! All she has to do is find a nice cushion for the seat!

Thanks for all the kind words folks and also thanks for the support also when asking advice
Yes the chest / stool is a extra storage space.

I must say it was fun using my tools.
Wouldn’t have a chance with our looking at all you guys stuff.

Again thanks.

At least wife is happy now I can concentrate on the kitchen.

Considering how many toiletries and bottles and things women have, this vanity is perfect for storing all those little things!!
