Bath Vanity

This is a bath cabinet that I designed and built for a paying customer. They had a water incident in their home and the old vanity was destroyed. This design solved a few problems, first it had to be built to utilize the previously purchased counter top assembly. Second the space was only five feet wide and the customer wanted more drawers instead of doors only as was the case with the previous vanity. This way the customer got four large drawers in the small footprint that was required. The bottom drawers are installed on full extension drawers to eliminate the need to bend over and reach into the back of them and the middle drawers are on bottom mounted slides to maximize interior volume. This vanity was also my very first attempt at raised panel doors (not too shabby if I do say so myself). The carcass is constructed of birch ply and the face frames, trim/moldings, and doors are constructed of solid poplar. The finish is water-based Minwax stain and three coats sprayed high solids gloss lacquer. Needless to say the customers were very happy with the finished product. Please feel free to leave any and all comments.

Stock vanities waste a ton of space. That’s a much more efficient design.

Very nice, loved the other pics of the construction as well. The drawers on the bottom are a great idea!
Nice color as well.

GREAT DESIGN. The finish really came out good on the poplar. You did a great job and I am sure that the client was really happy with the end product.
