Our latest project, Full cedar vanity.
We used 1” thick cedar boards for the vanity base glued to 18” x 42” sat that on 2 -2” x 3 1/2” cedar to give us our toe kick space,
The side panels are natural edge cedar slabs we edge join them somewhat straight so we can get a glue edge, but we also add a few side supports that are glued and screwed. We do leave on some bark if it is solid,
The drawers are full 1” cedar boards and we use a full extension drawer slides,
The doors again are natural cedar slabs,
The top is natural edge 2” thick cedar slab
We accent it with a few small log pulls and handles and we have a vanity
Love build these units, this one is going to MD.

What kind of a finish do you put on that or do you let the customer do that? Nice work by the way.

Great looking. The wood selection loks fantastic. The amount of wain on each side of the drawer fronts matching shows a great designer at work. Very nice.
