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.
