Vanity I built to match an antique makeup table/ mirror. I templated the top and upscaled it to vanity dimensions to get the shape. I take no responsibility for the finish. The homeowner had their painter do a crackle finish on it, wouldn’t have been my choice.

Very neat looking piece but how did you curve the raised panels on the sides (and front)?

Nice finishing job – the matching with the marble top is perfect.

I had to build a full size mockup to the inside dimensions of the cabinet. I then made a staved glue up of the panels. Really a pain because the angles change from the convex to the concave curves. Its pretty much trial and error for each piece.
