A carpenter friend of mine was remodeling a bathroom for a customer of his and could not find a cabinet like the woman was looking for. So he asked me to custom make one. It is a simple 36” vanity with a 24” seating area and a 12” stack of drawers. His customer wanted to paint it white so I construted it out of maple plywood and poplar frontsdrawer boxes, and frames. I used the Kreg drawer jig to mount the slides and drawers. The jigs saved me lots of time and headaches. I spent half the time mounting the slides that I normally do. He was pleased with how it turned out and was sure his customer would like it. :)
