This is the latest cabinet that my whife “commissioned” to be added to one of our bathrooms. The vanity and storage cabinet are constructed from cherry solids and 3/4 cherry plywood. The finish is my usual routine of BLO, sealed with 1# coat of shellac and topcoated with wipe on poly.
I have to give my wife credit for the design. We have come to a working arrangement whereby she handles design and I will take care of “engineering”. :) Originally I had planned on putting a cherry top on the vanity along with a vessel sink and wall mount faucet. But after cutting and fitting the top, and getting a cost estimate to complete the vanity, my wife decided to save money and go with a commerical top. After purchasing the top, faucet and sink accessories the grand total was about $75 less than the wall mounted faucet would have cost. As far as my preferences go I would rather have spent the extra money and put in the vessel sink but after 33 years I have learned to simply say “Yes, dear” and go along with what she wants. :)
Needless to say it did not take her long to fill it up either.
As always thanks for letting me share this with the group.
