Here’s a bathroom vanity I made for our master bathroom. The carcase is birch ply, and the face frame, door frames and drawer fronts are river birch. This is the only photo I have at the moment, but I’ll post more soon. It will be installed between two walls, so the sides won’t show, which is why there are exposed screw heads there :-)
This is my first real cabinet project. I’d never used pocket-hole joinery before, but I wanted to give it a try before I invested in the equipment myself, so I borrowed my dad’s Kreg jig to make the face frame. I was very impressed with how well it worked. In fact, I used pocket-hole joinery to attach the carcase to the base and to attach the face frame to the carcase, as well.
I modeled the vanity in SketchUp, which was really helpful. Once I figured out the overall dimensions, I was able to try different combinations of doors and drawers in SketchUp and let my lovely wife choose the configuration that she liked best.
Thanks for looking!
Update (last photo): The vanity was finally installed today, so I decided to add one more photo that shows what it looks like with the finish on, and with the top and hardware installed.
