This is an unfinished pine vanity I did for a ladies eight year old girl. They will make a project of finishing it. I always thought a vanity was where you shaved and brushed your teeth. I did soft close draw slides and put the letter “M” inlayed for her first name with my Rockler Inlay system.

Now the best part. Call the mother and get paid!!. LOL.

You sure did a nice job on this nicely designed vanity Don. I hope they do it justice with the finish.

Very nice work! I particularly like the fold down mirror and inset trays.

I like this piece. You did a nice job and the inlay kit obviously works well too. Now, like you said, time for the best part – harvesting the fruits of your labor.

Turned out well Don. The brackets and tapered legs give it a simple elegance.
