This is the smallest bathroom cabinet in the house. This is one of the few completely done. All cabinets in the house are made of Hard Maple. The sink I bought at Lowes. It came with a cheap cabinet that I tossed. The hardest part about this style cabinet with the flush doors is, to keep it all flush. The finish is tung and polyurithane.

I have a small bathroom like that with a pedestal sink. A cabinet like that would add some much needed storage room. Thanks for the idea!

I really like those kind of sinks, my wife and I almost got one for our kitchen. Beautiful vanity. Really nice job.

Good looking cabinet. Before you tossed the “stand” it came with, did you trace the front rail to fit the sink or did you have to come up with the curve yourself? And if you had to come up with the curve yourself, how about enlightening us?

Like the “Shaker” look with the flat panels. Matches well with the sink design. Going to bookmark this one and show the wife.

Wow, what a welcome for such a little cabinet.

The space I had to work with for depth was only 14”. The sink “belly” is flat on the back. So before I tossed the old cabinet i traced the front. I scribed the top and sides in within an 1/16-1/8” than I took a brown caulking (HD had a nice match for me) and before the last coat of poly I put the caulking in place. I used masking take to cover wall and wood before I used the caulking and give it an extra 1/16 and use a coulking knife to scape off the extra caulking. After putting the caulking on finish off with the last coat of polyurithane.

The recessed panel doors are made on the router table.
