My wife didn’t like the pedestal sink in our small bathroom because she couldn’t put stuff like a soap disk on it. We found this sink at the local home center. It was displayed on a vanity similar to this one, but the vanity was only available in a dark cherry finish. Other cabinetry in our house is hickory, so that is what I used to make this vanity.
We both prefer the open style as opposed to a more traditional enclosed vanity because the bathroom is small. I used full-extension slides on the drawer for better access. A neighbor asked me where I got the 4” stock for the legs. I explained how I built them up using a locking miter router bit from Rockler. By ripping the leg parts from a wide board, I was able to match the grain on three corners, so it’s not easy to tell the legs are not solid.
