I have been busy helping a client remodel his bathroom for his wife. They had drawn up a sketch of what they wanted and I made up a Sketch up drawing. Once we had the design, I sharpened up the pencil and created the 3 vanity sections. The client is at home tearing out the old vanity and floor, moving water pipes and drains.

I turned my work to the drawers, which are dovetailed both front and back. Meanwhile

I had the vanity completed about the same time the floor was finished and we set it a day before the granite guy showed up! I finished up the center piece, the mirror frames under the lights and the tall full length frame during the week it took for the granite to come. The granite was set on Friday and we complete the back splash on Saturday. The cabinets are made from Oak, the drawers from 1/2” poplar, and the cabinet fronts, drawer fronts, and mirror frames from QSWO.

It was a fun project to do. I think it was about 6 weeks from the first sketch on the napkin to complete installation. Thanks for looking!

I can’t even imagine trying to tackle a job like that nowadays. Good work, Steve. Really nice looking dovetails.

Thanks for all the great comments and compliments. It is funny how much I learn each time I take on a project like this. There is always something that one is not sure of. That is why this site is a great place for help as well as places like You Tube. The finish that the homeowner choose was a red mahg stain finished off with 4 coats of clear shellac sanding with 700 grit between coats.

Very nice installation. What type of finish did you use? Really like the center cabinets with the flanking mirrors.
