This project was for a friend that is building a FANCY horse barn. It’s only a barn because horses get to sleep there also. I contains a living space much nicer that a lot of houses I have seen.
My friend and his wife have been looking for a bathroom cabinet to match the decor and weren’t having much luck so they asked if I could make one from a simple plan they had made up.

A few notes on the living space in the barn. It’s almost all wood that was cut on our Woodmizer. It’s Simply beautiful. I will post pictures on that later.

The Vanity is made of Black Jack oak. Let just say it’s HARD! The vanity consists of simple frame and panel doors on the left and three large drawers on right. The face of the panel doors and end panels are book matched. Not very complicated but it turned out nice. There is no hardware on the cabinet in the picture, they were still trying to decide, and wanted to add it later.

The sink is a handmade copper sink made in Mexico.

Thanks for looking YBNORMAL

I just finished a ‘wing box’ of blackjack and not only is it hard, it doesn’t play nice with the planer. You did a super job on this. Can’t wait to see the rest of the house/barn. I have a client whose entire barn is lined with rough sawn sycamore. Would have been SOOOO much nicer if they had planed/finished it. But it’s cool as all the wood came off their place.

Nice looking vanity! I just finished one made from hickory; curious how you finished this and how well the wood top has held up over the years?

Finished with three coats of BLO and then three coats of satin water based poly. I happen to have been invited to a party at the barn last weekend, I was very pleased with how it was holding up. It looked great despite hard use.

Nice, thanks for your reply. I finished my with ~4 coats of Minwax “tung oil” and 7 coats of poly, so hopefully it will hold out over time!
