    PIP Double Wide Vanity

    Good Evening Friends,
    I have completed a double wide vanity and would like to show you some pictures. Now since I haven't mastered setting up on your forums yet I am going to explain before I show the pictures.
    1. This picture is of the vanity dry fit to assure that all parts fit before I start gluing.
    2. The next few pictures are of the vanity in various stages of stain and to my dismay some of the vanity did not do as well as others.
    3. I sanded off parts that did not suit me or my client, as I had her to come and look at it, in the stage it was in and before I applied any finish.
    4. The view after the sanded out areas were restained. As you can tell the pictures are almost too dark so when I finished it I moved it outside to give you a better picture of how it turned out.

    I hope you like what you see. The last picture has a flip out for make up or brushes and in all of my sink fronts rather than using false fronts I incoporate this method in all of my sink fronts.

    Cool flip out Frank. It looks like you use a slot and some sort of stop built in as opposed to the "store bought" variety. Very nice proportions as far as height to width, shelf position and all that. I have very minimal gifts in the area of design but I am one of those people who knows what looks good when he sees it ;-)

    Very nicely done Ralph. I like the color and proportion. Thanks for sharing.

    Very nice work, Ralph. Did you turn the legs or purchase the pre-made?

    Great job Ralph! Please show pics of the piece installed if you can. I really like the design as opposed to the usual box!

    I saw a lathe with a long tool rest on it in Ralph's shop tour...me thinks he turned them?

    Great vanity Ralph! Well Done.

    Vanity

    Good Evening Friends,
    I hate to disappoint you but I did not have time to turn as it had to be made by a certain time of which I hate because haste makes waste, and it did as I had to do some modifying.

    Respectfully,
    Ralph Jones
