Sorry Jocks,

Sometimes life gets busy and you dont get time to do everything you want to (or need to do). Ive been bouncing around all over the place with reality. But anyways here is a vanity I build for some customers last year. Its constructed out of quatersawn white oak frames, bookmatched wenge panels, and UV maple plywood for carcass construction. I did by customer’s demand stain the white oak, I tried really hard to talk them out of it, but after I was all done I thought the stain was pretty appropriate for the look. I called this a “cabineture vanity” due to the idea that its a cabinet with furniture properties-leg elements, hand veneering, depth changes in the face frame, sliding doors on the medicine cabinet, and built rock solid! Im sure Im going to get some hate mail from using someone else’s word but hey anybody can build a box, few have the imagination to design something outside the box. Thanks for looking and keep cranking out dust!

Nice work, that wood combination is spot on. I also refrain from stains whenever possible, however I agree that this particular piece looks quite appropriately done.

No hate mail here. This is one nice cabineture vanity and is very close to what I would like to build for my bathroom at some point.

Awesome work Steve!
I especially like the medicine cabinet with its contemporary Arts & Crafts style. And there’s a little tansu in this as well. I know you build rock solid, your work will last generations. You make happy customers.
Good luck and have fun with your next project.

Cool design & nice job. I think the stain came out good, I am with you though as the wood usually has enough natural beauty on it’s own why cover it up? Customers always right.
