Last night I installed the last 4 door knobs, which officially finished my dual vanity project. This is the permanent fixture that replaces the ”temporary” one I built in January of 2019:

It took a little over a year from the original plans, which started with a digital CAD model using Autodesk Inventor.

This wasn’t my first time doing inset doors, but I learned a new trick to help keep the spacing even using a deck of playing cards, which also proved helpful when attaching the drawer fronts.

The casework is all oak, interior is Baltic birch plywood, and the dovetailed drawers are made from maple.

Considering the number of pieces that are included in this vanity, this has been one of the most extensive projects that I’ve attempted, and I’m so stinking proud of how it turned out.

Side note: thanks to my lovely wife for her patience throughout the build.

And I bet your wife was very happy with the results too! I love craftsman style cabinets. You attention to detail is amazing! Although I gotta say, there is some ambiance about 2×4s in a bathroom! Excellent job!
