This is a vanity I made for a close lady friend of mine. All oak with three maple drawers behind one door. The half spindles I turned on the lathe, which was a bummer to turn without a steady rest then cut it half. It kept flexing on me so I had to turn it with very light cuts. I added 1/4 inch oak strips on edge to enhance the top. 33 1/4 wide 18 inches deep to fit in her bathroom.
All my projects are made of rough cut lumber unless I pick some up at auctions.
