I had a lavatory and needed a vanity for the bathroom. I wanted to make the top from some 1 /14 inch Alder that I had. I also wanted it to be a little like a wash stand. Or maybe a dry sink. I built the top and Carleen and I went to town and got some epoxy bar top finish or some such a thing. I thought I read the instructions right and we leveled the top up on the work table. Luckily we put a plastic sheet under it. I had already stained it with Benwood Cherry. I mixed up what I though it would take and began to apply the epoxy. Well, we got it all on there and then watched it run of for what seemed like three days. We wound up with a water proof top anyway. We also got a lesson. I made the end panels from Birch ply which had a nice grain and with the stain they match up pretty well. The pulls are the cactus from deer horns. I dovetailed the center stile in to make it a little unique. Taking photos in this tiny room is a job for someone smaller an more limber than I am. The next post over is the rest of the LITTLE room.
