Vanities had me pretty busy for a while. Another with hand rubbed oil stain and lacquer. I ve learned to appreciate these small jobs lately. You can always see the end of them. Thanks for all comments as usual. JB

Very attractive vanity. Did you carve the top design and the fluted columns?

Thanks for sharing.

ok ill be the devil why no back legs are you just going to screw it to a wall I have never seen this stain on oak it looks better than the typical red oak with a honey stain that is in every tract home in California. I will assume you will put a granet counter on top. nice job 4.5 out of 5 stars

Really like the design. I’m curious as well, Oak would,nt be the material of choice for carving? did you mix your own stain?

Thanks folks and L/W that is an onlay on the dummy panel,(life is short, I buy them when I can ), and I do all the fluting and turnings,thanks, And Dude yes it did mount into a left corner and did get granite with undermount sink. Doc, yes I did mix the stain and had it matched up and coded some years ago. It has very heavy pigmentation and is pretty easy to take it either direction. I use it often, thanks JB
