First off sorry about the pictures. Our master bath is small and I struggled to get a good angle with the camera.

This is my first attempt at cabinetry. All in all I am fairly pleased with it. Made a fair amount of mistakes along the way, but the end result turned out to be acceptable. The base is walnut finsihed with 2 coats of Watco Danish Oil Dark Walnut. The top is maple and finished with 4 coats of poly.

Broglea, this is a gorgeous vanity. Walnut is a gorgeous wood and, combining it with maple, gives a nice contrast. The maple that you used for the top has quite a bit of visual interest and character to it.

Beautiful work! I like the dark walnut and the contrasting maple top. Did you build the top in sections or all at once? If that is your first cabinet, I’m looking forward to seeing what you have next year.

Have your say...
