I’ve been commissioned by some friends to repurpose some bent plywood pieces to make a bathroom vanity.
I’m a little torn on how to complete it. They want three stacked drawers on one half, and one door on the other. The bent corner pieces are giving me a headache, it’s like picking my poison, do I over complicate the drawers, or the door. I’m almost thinking the drawers need to be on the far right and the door to the left, but hinged in the center…. ugh.
here’s the wood.
Here is my mock up from the dimenions they asked for. The flat rounded corners of the material will be cut off, as will any dowel holes that are in the material currently. On panel will be cut completely to make both of the vertical flat panels. The box will be biscuited together, then assembled just like a regular cabinet, and cantelievered on the wall with steel brackets.
The sink is contemporary, and will be mounted onto the vanity, completely centered.
I’m already planning on doing a partial partition in the center for drawer slides but leaving room for the plumbing. The bent corners though, they are screwing with me. A square drawer box won’t work in the top and bottom position. I’m already planning on ordering them smaller to accomodate the plumbing, but running the drawer fronts wider to keep symmetry.
Any help / ideas would be great.
