Default Another Vanity.

Started working on the vanity for the master bathroom this weekend.

Its a modified L shape, I'm making the short leg at 45 degrees instead of 90.
The left hand section will be 3 drawers, the center section will be 1 drawer, and a cabinet with adjustable shelf, the 45 degree section will have a tilt out sink drawer, and cabinet below.

I'm having to build it in two sections so I can get it through the hallway and turn the corner to the master bedroom/bathroom in the house, its 60 by 36.

I'm also building a corner medicine cabinet, so when you stand in front of the sink at the 45 your looking straight into the mirror.

More pictures to come.

Very nice design, and you got a lot done in a single weekend. You need several more shelves for the medicine cabinet and a couple of Lazy Susans so you can see the stuff in the back. In the second picture, why do you have the head of a Siamese Cat on the floor of the center section?

“We should be careful to get out of an experience only the wisdom that is in it and stop there lest we be like the cat that sits down on a hot stove lid. She will never sit down on a hot stove lid again and that is well but also she will never sit down on a cold one anymore.” - Mark Twain

That's a spring clamp, but it took a few seconds to figure it out. Sure look like a cat from that angle.

BTW, those will be really nice cabinets when done. What will you be using for counter tops?

I'm so relieved! I just wondered what the cat had done to deserve decapitation . . .

Ha Ha had me going for a min, I had to go look. Yep its a spring clamp.

I'm going to scrap the plywood shelves in the medicine cabinet, and make three out of 1/4 inch acrylic.

I'm probably going to go with white Formica, I priced getting a counter top made, but because its an odd shape, they want $125.00 to start that's before the cost of material, and labor is figured in.

Ill make one myself, it wont have the fancy edge, I'm thinking of getting some exotic wood, and routing an edge detail on it and using that for the edge.

Got the rest of the supports installed, and the Toe Kick installed.

Now I gotta start ripping some poplar for the face frame stuff.

Went and did Mr. Fix It chores for the church this morning, came back and started working on the vanity.

Got the face frame for one half glued together, now working on the 45 degree section, cutting the mating frame pieces at 22 1/2 degree so everything lines up is a B.
