Hi,

Renovation with the upstairs. Wify saw a pic of a vanity base. Rustic but cool.. I used reclaimed Maine chestnut barn wood. Reinforced the wood. Planed the shelf wood. The cool part of this is that there are 82 domino joints. 164 holes.

It’s still wet in the pics. But dries to the grey tone. The legs are golden color wise.

There is a front 4 degree splaywith the tapered legs.

Where did you get the Chestnut? I’ve always wanted to do a Chestnut project but had problems finding a source.

Nice touch with the tapered legs. The shelves look really neat and clean too. Great gift for the wifey!

Old world bugs killed off the chest nut trees. We planted some up north that are bug resistant and by now they are getting pretty good sized. But finding some to restore was indeed cool. Great job on this. Have to smile at the simple old fashioned cleating of the corners.

Have your say...
