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.
