Default New Vanity

Finally got a little time to myself, and I finished making the new vanity for my guest bathroom.

The drawers on the top corners are poplar with dovetail joints, and have full extension soft close slides, the center sink section has a tilt out drawer (Rev A Shelf hardware).
the sides have adjustable shelves. also there is a drawer down low in the center (under the plumbing area) that is full extension on ball bearing slides (again dovetail joints). All the doors have Blum soft close hinges.

it's made from pre-finished maple plywood, the face frame is poplar, and the drawer fronts are poplar, the doors I made with a poplar frame and MDF center.

the face frame and drawer fronts and doors will be painted, as soon as I get time.

Just thinking out loud , but having mdf areas that are carved from routing has always been an issue for me in car audio , as the mdf always soaked up all the paint . I usually had to coat the edges with bondo to seal it.
Is this an issue in this circumstance ?

I like it. All the doors and drawers line up perfectly and everything is in balance. You get a 100% on the build.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Nicely done, and you didn't skimp on the hardware. I built a vanity a few years ago with Blum soft-close slides and hinges. I smile every time I close a drawer or door.

Very nice. You should be very proud.
