I recently finished a remodel of our master bathroom and I did the cabinetry work. The finished product has been getting a lot of press lately…it is a feature in the project gallery of the latest issue of Fine Homebuilding (Nov 2009).

The vanity is cherry with crotch cherry panel doors. The floating top is Waterfall Bubinga. It has amazing grain! The sinks are glass vessel bowls. The cabinet on the opposite corner has a cherry top and painted plywood case and doors. The drawers are actually false front doors. There is a low wall next to the toilet area so I put up a divider made with cherry for the frame and bubinga side panels. The center is a single sheet of stained glass.

Hope you like!

-- Jeff,

Very good job. The waterfall bubinga is amazing. What did you finish the bubinga with to make it waterproof enough for a bathroom ?

Thanks for sharing

Thanks all for the nice feedback. loupitou06 asked about the finish on the Bubinga. It has one coat of Seal-a-Cell to pop the grain followed by 4 or 5 coats of Arm-R-Seal. Both products are from General Finishes. The Arm-R-Seal is an oil & urathane based finish. This provides a tougher finish than a lacquer finish.
