I made a Cherry Vanity top when I decided to update my bathroom. I also made the frame around the mirror to match the black vanity bottom. 12 coats of a poly with lite sanding between each coat. Has been around around 6 months ago and no problems with water on solid wood so far…

Very nice. Twelve coats should do the trick. Thanks for sharing.

Did you seal the underside with the poly? Could cause the wood to warp if not sealed underneath

Looks good though

That is really very nice.

I’m curious as to how it will hold up over time, but at least for now it is really beautiful.

I made one out of cherry as well. I love the look. I used something different for the finish though and it seems okay so far, except for one thing…..It will forever (I’m guessing here) stay kind of tacky. I made the mistake of laying a piece of paper on it with a bottle on top and the paper stuck to it (10 days after I installed it). I used a thick chemical finish that you pour on and let dry. It provides a real glossy finish. My Vanity I’d be interested in how your finish does over time.
