Bathroom Vanity

As part of an addition to the house, we added a master bathroom. Being the cheap guy that I am, I decided to save some cash on it and make the vanity myself. Made of walnut with poplar secondary wood. Used a frosted glass for the door panels. Also first try with the Blum undermount slides – very nice and not hard to use at all. Also made some matching mirrors.

Outstanding work Matt! Really like the design and feel of this. I just recently finished a vanity for our home and developed a greater respect for folks who do this regularly…. Not to mention the ones who nail it (unlike I did…lol)

Thanks for sharing…

Very nice work Matt.

I hope my wife doesn’t see this or I’ll be posting some very similar pictures in the near future….

I really like the tone you achieved on the walnut. Definitly some red in there. Mine is often very dark brown or too orange. Would you mind sharing your finishing method?

roundel – the tone is more from the wood than my poor finishing skills. I used one coat of boiled linseed oil then 5 or 6 coats of an oil/varnish wipe-on product (Formsby’s I think). Then rubbed it out with some steel wool. I had gotten some really nice air0dried walnut from the local hardwood supplier so I think most of the tone came from the wood.

Very nice cabinet and mirrors. I really like the design and the frosted panels.

The Blum under-mount slides are great and easy to install. I used them on my vanity cabinet too. The Blumotion soft-close mechanisms for the drawers and doors are an extra nice feature.

Assuming you didn’t cop an existing design, you have a great sense of design. Favorited. I peeped your other projects and you’ve got skills.
