This vanity cabinet was built directly above the staircase that leads to the basement. So the cabinet had to be constructed on a 45° angle. We needed to maintain as much storage room as possible, so custom drawers had to be fabricated, utilizing every available inch of space. I was able to squeeze enough room out of the lower two drawers to fit 2 rolls of toilet paper in each. This required a few alterations throughout the process, but patience won the challenge. I added the tip out hardware from Lee Valley, but had to fabricate my own tray as the one included in the pack was far too long. The finish is 4 coats of Benjamin Moore Cloud White in 20° sheen lacquer. I also built a matching mirror and medicine cabinet. I also completed all of the tile work throughout the bathroom.

Nice job Bryan, that is really well done. I can’t imagine trying to make that work, but you made it happen. I’m so impressed with the whole job, you have some serious talent. Also welcome to Lumberjocks, the folks here are super helpful and supportive.

Hi guys. Thank you for the comments and warm welcome to LumberJocks. This is an awesome site!
I used 7/8” MDF for the drawer panels and the door… not my typical choice, but I had no other option at the time. I usually use eastern maple for my stiles and rails. Thanks again! Bryan
