This is a collection of walnut pieces I’m making for a remodel project. It’s a very cool contemporary home built by a student of Frank Lloyd Wright. They’ve added quite a bit of square footage in the addition and lots of custom one-off built-in stuff. One of a kind. I also made the aluminum hardware for the vanity out of aluminum 1” plate and some of the mounting hardware is made of steel I fabricated. I’ll try and post more pics when it’s all finished.

Holy Wow… that is pretty classy contemporary. Really nice wood working (and metal).

Everything is beautiful. What kind of finish is on the walnut?

It’s stained, and then covered in polyurethane (~8 coats satin poly) and then covered with about 4 layers of a hard wax finish (buffed). There’s also a lot behind the scenes. It’s mounted with a double french-cleat using plywood backing that is fastened form the inside. It’s also bolted and glued to the surfaces behind it. Kind of complicated, but hopefully it will prevent warping.
