Its in and done not a lot to show, as I took these pictures then went shopping for the missing hinges.

A few minor mismatches with the existing tiling which will have to have quad fitted to cover it but otherwise all fitted in OK.

Here is the left side

Here is the right side

The plans I worked from.

So ends the vanity Project, I think its covered enough as a blog and as the door is not finished its not appearing as a project.

Yeah Rob… I remember seeing that ONE!

I thought you were not going to try to do that BUILT-IN on your top… not being sure of how to accurately drill all of those holes.

OK, how did you get the holes accurately drilled?

The locating holes for the water pipes and waste drain pipe were replicated from the original base, I simply used some transfer punches and cut the original holes undersize then cut a triangular section out.

I then added four tabs underneath for support.

Then with a flexible drive sanding sleeve made the holes bigger and did any concentric corrections needed.

I havent got a good picture of the fitup but this one is close.
