There was two of these made for the same bath on opposite sides of the room facing each other. The vanity is out of alder with a rubbed through paint. The legs are hand turned with maple dovetailed drawer box’s.

The mirror frames are out of walnut and silver leafed. The frame was made using a router with a tilting base for a small bosch router.

Well Les – you certainly are not in a rut with the projects you do. I just went through your projects again and the variety is really impressive. A very nice project and interesting application of the various wood species. Where is the carved face cloth?

Les;

You’ve not only outdone yourself on this, you’ve outdone the rest of us!

(we may not like you anymore) lol

Great workmanship, and excellent finishing job.

While I am more of a Shaker or Craftsman fan; the obvious workmanship, pleasing confirmation and extraordinary finish of this vanity leave nothing more to want. This is a masterpiece, Les. You have much to be proud of here. Ad Astra Per Aspera! (I was born in Topeka and came to adulthood in Lawrence – it does my heart good to see this level of workmanship come out of my home state). Bravo.

Now I am on to perilous ground. If I show this post to the wife in an attempt to weasel my way into an upgrade to a Bosch Colt with all the bases, will I be called upon to make something even vaguely as nice as this glorious piece of furniture.

Love the integration of the turned legs and the drawers and the way the countertop emphasizes the legs. Very well done!!

Thanks for posting.
