Hey Lumberjocks– just wanted to share my latest project – Master Bath Remodel.
The cabinet is Knotty Alder and was put together by Oak Mountain Cabinets. Oak Mountain Cabinets also surprised me with mirror frames that match the Knotty Alder cabinet. I added the bronze oil rubbed handles on the cabinet. I installed the cabinet and made the slab countertop from two pieces of Black Walnut joined together with a Festool trac saw and a Triton dowel joiner. It’s almost seamless. I left a live edge on the countertop and backsplash. The slab countertop was sanded to 400 grit and finished with 5 coats of Poly U. I always try to leave a few of the natural features in the wood. This slab had some great “flaws” and bug holes – also a nice round nail hole from a fence or sign install from days gone by. I also took one of the cut-offs from the countertop and made a small decorative shelf that holds soaps and razors.
Thanks for checking out the Walnut Slab – Master Bath Remodel

That slab is gorgeous, and those cabinets are beautiful with it! I sure wish I could convince my wife to do the wood counter thing.

This is really really cool. Nice combination of Alder and Walnut, I wouldn’t have thought of that combination. I’ve used some “buggy” walnut in stuff. My wife really likes the “defects”. Good job. Nice Piece
