gotta start by apologizing for the pictures, but my powder room is so small i had to build this vanity in place and the size really compromised the picture quality too. scrounging around at the local sawmill i came across this figured (tiger striped) maple. i have been saving a burled chunk of walnut for an accent piece, so i broke it out for this project. very simple joinery, .. dovetailed drawers, panel doors (on table saw). i took a minimalist approach to hardware so as not to distract from the wood grains. hand rubbed mixture of thinned down polyurethane and boiled linseed oil that i let soak in and then polished off multiple penetrating layers. gonna use a granite top to finish it off.
