Reclaimed wood vanity

To make a long story short, about an hour after I was told this wood was available, I had 2 requests for reclaimed wood projects. Seemed like it was meant to be. It’s 36” wide, 20”deep and 32”tall. The top has an epoxy coating. I chose the glass knobs because in my mind it fit the look.

The wood is from the Yates shaft at Homestake Gold Mine (now closed). They say that it’s been down there about 110 years. (I can’t verify that). I love wood with a story.

Thanks for reading and all comments and suggestions are welcome..

I like it. I like the glass look top and the fact it looks sturdy enough to support a truck!

Doesn’t get much rustic than that. Nice work.

I need to go change my underware now….. imo I would have went with antlers or tree branches for the pulls but it still turned out beautiful pictures never do justice and this is amazing in the pictures so it would be quite the sight in real vision

That’s a great looking vanity, Monte! Thanks for sharing it, and it’s backstory!
