Vanity, mirror frame and shelf made from left over red oak flooring from building our house. Nothing special about the construction, basic cabinetry. Doors are half lapped, satin poly finish, $3 mirror, $5 faucet, $15 sink, $3 hinges….not that I am cheap or anything…......<g>

Nicely done.

I have a quiestion. I have a pedestal vanity in my guest bathroom. I would love to enclose it. However since its a pedestal unit I caant find a template for the vanity. Any ideas on how I may go about getting it right?

I looked at our pedestal sink and not sure how I would go about enclosing it. Probably make a cardboard template of what I wanted and start making some sawdust.

Take a piece of wood, shape it, sand it, put a nice finish on it and it don’t look cheap, no matter the project.
The thing about using the left over flooring is I didn’t have to make biscuit joints as the flooring is already tongue and grooved. ...but, there is an art to gluing up panels and not having a warped product in the end. Not much pressure on the clamps and having opposed clamps is a must.
