Transformed our old bath by gutting it to bare studs, joists, and rafters. I did everything, but for purposes here the focus is on the vanity, wainscot, and trim. The dark wood is ‘throwaway’ Phillipine mahogany (Luann), the light wood is hard maple (salvaged scrap off a job) and the panels are 1/4’ maple plywood. The vanity used lots of pocket hole joinery for the faceframe and drawer and door fronts. Used stain to darken and redden the mahogany, and used Marine varnish on everything, because of moisture exposure in the bathroom. The vanity top got a few extra coats, water beads up on it nicely and we are quick to wipe it away. My wife loves her ‘Spa’ at home.
