Just finished this dry sink made with red oak. With minor changes, I followed a pattern and article by Marc Adams in the March 2011 issue of Wood magazine. I used red oak finished with two coats of amber shellac to match the other cabinets in our bathroom. Had a lot of fun building this; used a lot of different tools and learned a bunch of techniques. Our male cat, Stretch, approved it immediately.

Totally off the wood topic, but is that a Manx cat? I used to have 2 of them and they look almost identical to yours, poofy tail and all!

supercubber, Stretch and our other cat are both rescue cats from the county animal shelter. Their heritage is unknown and were called a “domestic short-hair” breed by the vet. I think in dog terms that means “mutt”. :)

Sounds identical to our story! Too funny! We rescued two brothers from the county shelter. Google Manx cats. I bet their personalities will match up.

Anyway, great project!

Very nice, I like it. Looks like it was made for that spot in your room.
