The powder room has a pedestal sink and therefore no room to store such essentials as woodworking magazines, toilet paper and air freshener!

Body will be painted clear pine. Top some quarter-sawn white oak I’ve been hanging on to for years.

The joinery is mostly pocket holes… read my ””shoe problem project for my thoughts on pocket screws if you like…

It’s been done for a couple weeks – sat in the garage forever while I tried to find the perfect hinges and knob. But I had to get it out of the shop and into the house so I settled on both the door and the hardware.

The door is a quasi raised panel but the panel isn’t mortisied, it’s floating and held together with pocket screws. The hardware is from Lowes and is fine for now, but my intention is to replace both the door and the hardware in the spring. I want a whte oak door to match the top.

The top I am especially happy with – I fumed the White oak which was the way Gustav Stickley used to darken his. I stuck the machined and sanded top in a big box with a bowl of household ammonia (the pros use much stronger stuff, which makes it darker, faster), but I like the color I got from leaving it in there for 3 days. I then finished it with Minwax hand rubbed poly.

The important thing is it’s done and LOML likes it!
