This is the full view of the vanity that I have posted in my blogs….......This is a 2 sink cherry vanity that I designed and built myself….....people will look at me and say you mean your husband built that…......and I say no, I built it with all by myself thank you very much. I built this to go into our new house….......I put this in the down stairs bathroom. There is still a little more work to be done to it, since we are not in the house yet, I have to move on to other projects in the house, and then I will come back to it. Oh and I forgot to make sure all of the drawers were closed before I took the picture…..........oh well it finally made it on here.

Well thought design and excellently built vanity. You (not your husband) did great job.

”.....people will look at me and say you mean your husband built that……...”
I would say yes we both built it, if I were you …..LOL.

Robin, this is gorgeous. The onlay and raised panels add nice details to the vanity. Also it is nice to see you included the sapwood as well. I, personally, think that this adds to the visual interest of the piece. This is a well designed piece that would be a compliment to any home’s decor.

How did you finish it?

By the way don’t be shy about posting pictures. There is room to add more to better showcase your work if you want.

Thank you everyone for taking the time out to look and post a comment, I appreciate your thoughts.

Hi Scott! I put a sealer on it, sanded it and then unfortunately put a satin poly on it. From what I have been reading in here I wish I would have put a different finish on it…....I also carved the feet and the carving up above the drawers…...those have no finish yet….......I still have more carving to add to each side of that piece and I still want to clean up my feet a bit more.

Nice work Robin. The vanity has good balance and design.

Could you elaborate on you are not pleased with the poly finish?
