I spent all summer remodeling my bathroom. The cabinet is the original cabinet. At some point in the House’s history somebody thought it would be a grand idea to paint that beautiful redwood. I stripped it off and meticulously sanded the nooks and crannies. Refinishing is now very low on my list of desirable projects.
My wife originally wanted a stone vanity top, but the estimate came in so high that it was laughable. Instead, she let me make the top out of hickory wood. I found a beautifully figured piece and finished it with Helmsman Spar. Choosing the finish was difficult, but I wanted something predictable and figured if it didn’t hold up well I could just redo it in a few years. I originally wanted to use a round-over bit on the edge, but on my first pass it looked so hideous I decided on a slight chamfer. Now it looks just right.
