Finished this a while back for our renovated bathroom.

The cherry is a few different shades because of the prolonged build. It should even out soon since there is a skylight in the bathroom(which was a much larger project LOL).

I just couldn’t bring myself to spend over a grand on a custom order vanity that I didn’t even like. So I convinced the misses to let me have a go at it.

Even with the soft close slides on the drawers I have under $200 into it. All of the panels on the sides and the panels in the doors are solid cherry, I didn’t want any glue joints.

I like the angled shot of your project : )
How wide are the door panels and how much expansion room did you leave in the door frames ?

Very very clean. My kind of vanity. Did you have the granite cut or did you build the vanity around the top? I ask because I’m planning a couple.

Thanks to everyone for the kind words

Dusty56, The panels are about 9”, and honestly I don’t remember how much room I left off of the top of my head. I did one of those calculations for max expansion and went with about that much. I did assemble the doors at our most humid time of the year so I hope for there to be no issues. I am thinking it was about 1/8” on each side.

Bertha, I had the granite cut locally, but it is a somewhat standard dimension for a 42” vanity top.

I loosely based the design from plans I found online. I can look up where I got them if anyone wants me to.

Thanks, I like the arched splash. It’s a nice accent for this piece.

Thanks Al, we thought it might add a little accent to an otherwise simple design. I love working with the cherry also. Really hard to make it look bad!
