Bathroom Vanity Base

Over the summer my wife decided to renovate a bathroom and replace the pedestal sink with a marble countertop and a clear glass bowl for the sink. I designed this simple cherry base. The base was sized to fit the size of the marble counter top that made sense in the small powder room. The marble is 35” x 18”. The base is 29” x 16”. The top of the countertop is 29” high and the glass bowl adds another 6”. The base is very simple mortise and tenon construction. I made the front and side aprons 5.5” high to try to hide the plumbing. I added a shelf made of slats that are about 3” wide and 1/2” thick. I planed a long bevel on the front of the shelf slats so the front edge is only 3/8” thick. Now I’m designing a matching mirror.

Good to see you back around Glen. The vanity came out really nice, I like the floor tile work too. What style is the mirror going to be?

Looks great and sturdy. Like the clean lines and the minimalist look. Great job!

How did you attach the slats?
