    Hardly worth posting, but ready for finish

    My wife wanted this vanity for our downstairs bath, and you know what they say. Anyhow, this wasn't a particularly challenging project and may not even be worth mentioning. It did have a lot or M&T joints, and I hid a lot of less worthy stuff. Anyway, on to finishing, which will be oil-based varnish (only) and will probably take more than a week to do. I intend to make the top glass smooth (finish, level, finish, level) which is almost painful waiting for the varnish to dry between leveling. Regardless, this was recently in Woodsmith...I made the mistake leaving it out when LOML could see it. I should mention, neither the top or the lower shelf slats arefastened in this photo, I'll complete assembly after I do the finishing.

    for me, there is nothing better in woodworking than making something that is useful and attractive for me or a family member.

    Fred,
    We're all our own worst critic. From my perspective that is a well crafted piece with nice lines! It may not be 'fancy' style wise, but who wants a chippendale vanity anyway? Well done!

    Task at hand (besides finishing) is to find a matching medicine cabinet plan. May need to throw in a light fixture as well. Thanks, folks! For the record, though the stand (table, whatever you call these type things) was easy to build, fitting it to that vitreous sink was not. I guess the art of making sinks isn't nearly as precise as I though it was. I know that slip material shrinks as they cook those things, but I sure thought they would have it down a little better than this, not a straight side or square corner on it.
