Matching Bathroom Vanities

We did a pair of his and hers bathroom vanities with a beautiful veneer. Called Cinnamon Laurel Burl, it is a great looking wood. We got it from Certainly Woods, out of New York.

The designs came from Tommi at K Gallery Art and Design. Her work is a joy to build, due to the great looking designs she comes up with.

The sheet goods are Mahogany furniture grade plywood, the solid wood is Mahogany, and they work well with the veneer color.

They are reverse images of each other, and sit at opposite sides of the room , with a whirlpool tub between them.

The construction technique is pretty straight forward. The only difference is the need for secondary sides to allow for the scrolls.

The bun feet make it look more like furniture than bathroom vanities.

The finish, conversion varnish, was done by my partner, Bruce Driscoll, as always. His training as a professional finisher comes in pretty handy. Actually, thinking back, I believe he built them as well, long with my stepson, Evan.

You guys really produce some beautiful work, Lee. I really appreciate how open you are with the details and suggestions too. You’re kinda like that “big brother”, which is exactly what an amatuer woodchipper like myself needs. Now I gotta go redesign my bathroom!

-- Bob Vila would be so proud of you!

Hello Dadoo;

Two things;

1. If your anything like me, you’ll have plenty of time to sit there and think about the design. LOL

2. Like a big brother, without the getting beat up part. (at least that’s what I remember most about my big brother).

Thanks,

Lee

Hi Roger;

No, that was the purpose of the conversion varnish. It with stands all kinds of difficult conditions.

Hi Charlie,

As this is the designer with the stone carver husband, they are hand carved stone with a recessed bowl.

I’ll have to dig out and post the rest of the bathroom. Tommi did the french plaster, and her husband did hand carved limestone columns at the tub.

Hi Phil;

Bruce has a “recipe book” that matches the color samples we have. He mixes his own stains and dyes, and won’t tell me how, for job security reasons.

I told you the guy is smart! LOL
