    Cherry Bathroom Vanity

    Cherry vanity I built with granite top. I made the drawers from hard maple & feature half-blind dovetails & bottom mount soft close slides.

    Wow, James. Yet another fine piece of work.

    You've been on a picture marathon today. Did you just get a roll of film back from the 1-Hour Photo place or what? Seriously...you've posted some pics of great work today. Now just don't wait another 4 years before posting the next project(s).

    Thanks. I usually haven't had time to take photos or forget until the project is done & gone. It's not something I'm used to. Usually it's finish the project then move on to the next. I was loading some pics into the computer before I accidentally erase them.

    Nice looking vanity. What did you use for a stain/topcoat?

    I am not going to show this to my wife or she'd want to have one too.

    Great work.

    Hi Rich, Thanks!
    **For the finish I brushed on Minwax Pre-Stain. I apply it & don't wipe off like instructions. Cherry is very bloch prone.
    **4 coats of Zar #124 Rosewood oil base stain. Brush on let sit a minute then wipe off with rag. Let dry between coats. It will get darker with each coat. 4 came out to the shade wanted. No sanding on stain.
    **Spray with HVLP 2 coats of wax free sanding sealer. (Must be compatible with oil base polyurethane). Sand lightly with 320gr.
    **Spray with HVLP Deft oil base Polyurethane thinned with Naptha. 4 coats of Semi-Gloss sanding lightly between coats with 320. Let last coat dry.

    For the areas like inside cabinet schedule was the same minus the stain & fewer coats of clear as it will not get any daily handling. If you use water base products you can get most of finish done in one day.
