I’m turning my basement laundry room into a bathroom and this is the first of several planned projects for the room.

I didn’t want the vanity design to be so great that it diverted attention away from the beautiful glass sink and faucet. I wanted a vanity that was simple, but attractive and one that complemented the sink.

The towel rack doubles as a drawer pull. The drawer is U-shaped to accommodate the plumbing.

The hidden TP cubby will be within arms reach of the throne to provide immediate resupply.

Hidden compartments are always cool. I thought the TP cubby was clever and the wife loves it. That’s all that really matters, isn’t it?

The wood is Tineo. The sink is from Kraus.

What an awesome design. Towel rack/drawer pull & TP cubby are just great.

Tineo is a South American hardwood. I picked some up on my last wood buying trip. This is just my second project using it. It finishes really nice, but all of the lumber (8/4) that I bought was twisted and cracked which made working it a pain.

“Hidden compartments are always cool.”

I agree. Saw a nightstand with 1 by material as baseboard. Dados and splines held the base to the outside of the frame, on the inside of the frame were dados that supported a thin shelf dadoed into the front piece of base. When you pulled the base away from the nighstand the shelf slid out with it.
