Here are some build pictures and notes about my process of building the floating vanity and live edge backsplash with ebony bowtie inlays. If you are interested in the fine details of the build please read my personal blog Building Walnut a vanity or watch the youtube video below.

I started out filling the unwanted holes in the vanity top with epoxy

Cut the angle on the top with skill saws and beveled the end on the table saw with glued on guide

Glue blocks to clamp the angles

Attached the french cleat to hang it

Installed plywood beams to support the vanity top.

Flattening the slab with a router and rail methode

Hand chopping out the bowtie inlays

Mitered corner turned out awsome
