This was designed to suit a small bathroom. Diagonally opposite this vanity is a shower with a curved front. Before this there was a rectangular vanity and the corner stuck out and was a real obstruction. The pull out drawer added storage and convenience.

That looks very nice. Usually I like symetry, but I like this asymetric piece because it work for the space it is in. How does the pine cope with the wet conditions? Since the sink bowl is elevated, there is no way to wipe water into the sink if it should spray onto the countertop. But still, I like it.

I do think this is very attractive but there is a reason wood isn’t typically used no matter how well you seal it from the water. Hopefully yours lasts a while. That live edge is sure eye catching.
Nice project.

That looks great. Though knowing the cleaning needs of a bathroom I wonder about getting soapy drips and toothpaste dribbles out of the bark on the live edge. I know these things shouldn’t happen… but the mess my kid can create in a bathroom has made me very cautious about these things ;)
