My daughter took me to IKEA one day, she wanted to buy a vanity. Dumb me, told her this is all junk; well, could you build me one? Sure. So I did, here it is, no plans just sort of made it up as I went along. The chair is the former project; took a finishing class from Charles Neil over the summer and he (along with ED) helped me learn the spraying of water based finish with the chair as my spraying project.

That looks great, and definitely far better than the Ikea offerings.

I really like the piece and after having a look at the construction pics I’m even more impressed. Great job on all the details including the beautiful finish.

Thanks for sharing.
