So my parents decided they wanted to gut the bathroom and redo it. I’m currently at College for woodworking, so I offered to design and build it for them.
Even with all the new computer programs i use at my school, I designed it old school with pencil, paper and a lot of erasing.
There are 3 separate cases (for easy transporting from school to home). They are made from some 3/4” maple plywood from Home Depot. The doors, drawers, drawer fronts and face frame are made from maple. The doors and drawer fronts were assembled using cope and stick with just a recessed flat 1/4” veneered panel instead of a raised panel. The drawers were kept simple, using dado joints.
I used Blum soft close drawer slides, and also Blum soft close door hinges.
Also, above the doors, it is a tipout (in the process of making the tray for it)
It is pre-finished with a Minwax Conditioner, then with Teak stain (not sure of manufacturer since found at school)
Then coat of sealer and 2 coats of lacquer using HVLP system at my school.
Overall Size, 59.5” wide (With fillers installed) X 31” High (with countertop) X 21.25” Deep
Picture 1: Finished and installed
Picture 2: Same as above but higher angle

And if anyone has any suggestions of what else i should say here for my next project, greatly appreciated.
Thanks for looking,
