I made this vanity table for my stepdaughter I found the bed frame and used it for the legs i wanted to use the spindles but couldnt come up with a way to incorporate them into this project . I will surely find a use for them later . I had some pallets from work and some leftover tile for top.
I tried something a little different with the stain. The tile had a little bit of crimson in it So what the hey
I am building one for my other stepdaughter but it will be little bit different.

Can’t go wrong with a little red, a real nice compliment to the tiles and the blue/grey verticals are perfect too.
That’s an interesting looking vice you have there, an early moxon?

Thanks vipond33, I just got back into woodworking in the last year and I got into practicing hand cut dovetails so
I had an extra board and bolted it into my bench and made some handles for it. It works well but it needs a little tweaking. Eventually I hope to make a true moxon vise though
