These narrow built-in towers were ordered by a customer in dire need of storage in a tiny bathroom. Built from birch veneer plywood and solid birch. The stain and all design elements were dictated by the style of the vanity that was already in place. The drawers run on full extension slides. The upper section of the unit on the right serves as a lockable medicine cabinet. The lower sections are 13” deep while the upper sections are 9” deep. This was done to prevent feeling boxed in while standing at the sink. Both units are 76” high.The wider unit is 12 1/2” wide. The other is 10 1/2” wide. The child’s two-step doubles as storage for bath toys. Finish is aniline dye followed by gel stain followed by a seal coat of shellac. Then a couple coats of sprayed waterborne lacquer.

Beautiful! And it’s nice to hear your design considerations. Stepping back to not crowd the sink is something to remember for the future. I also admire your finish on birch..known for splotching. These look wonderful. Good job!
