Just my 2 cents worth, and it may be worth less: If I was doing that vanity for myself, I would look for some plastic laminate with the look of wood as close to the picture as possible. Then use cherry (or what ever it is) for the rest. That top is going to get some abuse over the years and the best clear finish will ultimately need redoing. Plastic laminate will hold up better and look good longer. If carefully done, I think you would have to look twice to tell the top is not real wood.
