Gorgeous work. I wish LJ would let you post more photos so I could see all the good stuff! How’d you support the drawers, what’s on the back of that TP roll holder, etc. Do you plan to reframe those mirrors to match, or have you had enough? :-D
Thanks for sharing!

Very nice remodeling of the bathroom. The vanity looks great and the towel rack and shelf, the whole thing is excellent…well done.

Adam – The secondary wood under the top and the drawer supports are red elm and maple which is strong wood that I had on hand in the shop. The only real drawer is in the center, the other two are just drawer fronts in front of the sinks. A lot of this was fastened with pocket screws coupled with a cabinet tongue and grove system I obtained from Sommerfields Own website. All of the joints on the shelf and the lower portions of the legs are genuine pinned through mortise and tenon joints
The TP holder was of my own design and the back was made of 1/4” walnut. I did have to make a prototype to get all of the dimensions right to fit the opening I had to fill.
The mirrors were custom made for us in a local frame shop and are mounted on a knee wall which is not too evident in the picture. The top of the mirrors are right at the roof-wall intersection. They are on hinges with some desk friction hardware so that their angles can be adjusted. This was also my own design and was what I came up with to have functional mirrors on the knee wall. The mirrors and associated hardware are mounted on finished walnut pieces and if the wife continues to like them I will probably leave them as they are.
If you would like addition details, let me know.
