I built this vanity as a commission for a long time family friend. It is made of mostly locally sourced Florida cherry and cherry ply. This piece kind of evolved as I went along, dictating changes as it went along. I tried something new with the finish, I had read online that using lye on cherry would kick start the natural aging process and produce a very old looking cherry finish. As you can see in the 5th picture the change was pretty dramatic and it was almost instantaneous. I did blog the process here with more pictures of the build if you are interested. As always enjoy and leave comments if you feel so compelled.
