Cedar posts with mortise/ tenon rails supporting the cedar slab tops and three slat racks underneath. 5 feet long.
Tops are live edge, 2 1/2 ” thick, cut from 3- 5 foot X 8 inch wide slabs splined together and cut to size.
I used Bullseye Shellac Sanding sealer X 3 coats for color retention to seal in the color on all surfaces immediately after all cedar used was planed to size , then, three coatings of Helmsman Outdoor Gloss sealer on all surfaces for a water resistant finish.
The mortise and tenon back frame and front frame were glued separately, joined front to back with rails fitted with bed rail brackets, so the whole thing can be taken apart and removed if the linolum needs to be replaced. It’s too wide to fit through my exiting bathroom doorway.
The walls behind and next to the washbowl and also the ceiling are also dyed red cedar T&G which I’ll post separately.
The cedar came from Cedar USA, located in Marengo, Indiana. The washbowl is from Menard’s.
I haven’t posted on here for awhile, having been consumed with bathroom(s) remodel for a year-and-a half now. Nice to get back into the woodworking end of the remodel job
