    tiny bathroom vanity and pullout hamper cabinet

    tiny attic bathroom, sink had a chip in it after I dropped a wrench on it, and my wife wanted it replaced, so instead of the 79 dollar home depot white melamine cabinet, I made one today.
    Shes happy, and Ill start the pull out hamper next week after I paint the bathroom, urrrghhh.
    I thought about custom made counter tops to span a few cabinets, but after inquiring about prices, I decided to stick with the 29 dollar sink. Noone uses this bathroom except me and my wife. Its a closet, it was put in for convenience.
    spent the day trimming up common ash,and garbage white oak getting out the knots, splits, made a ton of rails and stiles for the other cabinets, so Im good to go when I get all the hardware to continue.

    the vanity door will be hung higher, just laid it in the picture.(unit will be stained) Cabinetry 101.
    larry-I love my new cabinet door bit set.

    Looking good.
    If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.

    well, what I discovered today is I know alot less about plumbing than I do about woodworking.
    (and thats pretty sad)
    I intentionally made this tiny vanity the same size as the old one, but ofcourse, the tail pipe coming out of the old sink was 1/2 inch closer to the wall, and the drain pipes were glued, so in order to get the tail to fit in, it would have to be cut and redone. Something I cannot do.
    so I called my plumber, on a friday night, at 6 pm, and he informed me he was on vacation. I told him my problem, and he said he doesnt usually use a flexible tail pipe(whatever the pipe from the sink drain is called)but in a pinch, I could run over to the depot and get a 1.25 inch flexible one and install it.
    Ofcourse, once I got it, I had to call him back to make sure I was putting it on correctly.(my son was doing the labor)

    I felt like a crum calling him back knowing he was on vacation, but I didnt want to go a few days without the sink since I ripped the old one out.
    Hes a good guy, he explained it all to both of us, and said hes staying by his phone if I needed anymore help, dont worry about calling him back.

    this is the reason Ive been using him since 1982, .
    we finally got it installed, no leaks, sealed it all, put up a new light, now I can back to woodworking and make a few more cabinets and medicine chest.

    nah, like I said, what do I know about plumbing.
    the new flex pipe didnt work, it was a slow drip this morning whenever I turned on the sink.
    I opened the trap plug to make sure it was clean, not the problem.
    My plumber told me to leave it alone till monday, hell be home by then

    I did get my first part of my sons kitchen redo sanded and ready for staining today.
    (the old pantry hes keeping, built into the wall)

    Nice vanity, Allen.

    You sure have a nice plumber. I have been trying to get my electrician to come out here for the last two weeks and he finally showed up today.
