« Part 4: Where planes soar in a modern shop Part 5 of Custom Cabinet Construction series Part 6: Woodworkery vanity sides »

Doing a commission for a local architect with whom I’ve worked before. Furniture grade cabinetry or cabinet grade furniture, call it what you will, this is what I’m building.

Her borrowed design, tweeked by me. Thought I’ld try to keep track and post photos for other woodworkers. Should be an easy build. The bridle joint at the top of the legs should be fun. This cabinets could easily be adjusted to fit in any bath.

Fortunately she is wanting a light colored hardwood, so I was quick to suggest ash.

These sticks and sheets of veneer core, ash plywood will be the materials used.

Pocket holes (GASP) and dominoes (OHH) will be used in the construction as well. This is a bathroom cabinet after all.

I’m starting in with the side panels. All the wood is 8/4 and the center panel is a full 3/4” thick.

Be Good

That’s a pretty beefy vanity. Looking forward to your process.
