We bought our house three years ago and it has never made sense to me why our master 6-foot bathroom vanity had one center sink. We looked around at vanities in the big box stores and they were wanting over $1k for particle board crap. I therefore decided to take on the challenge. The top is made from a few beautiful boards of black walnut I found at a local lumberyard. I finished by brushing on 5 coats of waterlox semi-gloss. I would spray poly next time if I did it again, I’m not very pleased with how easy it scratches (even after 3 months). I made the face frame, drawer fronts, and doors from maple. I used 3/4’’ cascade maple plywood on the sides and petitions. I sprayed the bottom with a cream colored lacquer and finished it with two coats of clear on top. The most complicated part of the build was cutting a hole in the wall and rerouting the plumbing to each side. I wanted to resize the mirror and make a decorative frame, but since the builder liquid nailed it to the wall, I will not be doing that. Overall the project was a success and the wife is happy. We have so much more storage than before even with two sinks. I credit this to the drawers that we didn’t have before. So long for now!
