« Part 1: R & L Bathroom Re build Pt 1. Part 2 of Bathroom vanity rebuild series Part 3: Bathroom Vanity rebuild continues »

After wondering just how I was going to approach this build I decided that due to the existing plumbing and vanity still in place I would have to make separate parts and slide them into place then fix them in situ.
So I made the two back sections of the cupboard knowing I could slide them in place then pocket hole the corners to secure them.
Next was the base section I had to add additional supports under it due to the fact the original cupboard was build complete the just put in place.

As mine being modular and effectively free standing additional supports at the back were required for the base to sit on.

I layed out the existing pieces with the plumbing service holes and transfer punched them into the new base, cut the holes right in the min dimensions and cut a Vee section out to enable the base to slide in

Added some support blocks underneath the vee section and took it all next door for a fitup.

The Side fitted OK but the back did not until I found a nail hiding at the back in the way. Then all was OK.

The base I discovered needed work as there was a curved edge on the stone floor I missed initally.
So it was back home again for that profile to be cut in.

The service holes looked pretty close nothing my flexible drum sander couldnt fix.

While I was working away one of the family of Water Dragons that lives here decided to drop in and see what I was up to, maybe I was making too much noise and it was wanting ear muffs!

You could have a dedicated oval section for the plumbing connections…

Make the section from your Known template… Have a cutout for your special section & mount it into the main top.
... could be inlaid… :)
