Default Building a bathroom vanity

To the point now that I am building some bathroom vanities for my barndo. Using my own oak lumber I cut myself and hand picking the pieces for the drawer fronts for character. Lots of work done before it gets to this point but in the end itís worth it to me.
Here are a few teaser pics. Getting started on some doors this AM.

Drawer fronts look awesome. You will be happy every time you look at this character wood cut from your own oak trees. Good story and great craftsmanship, nice project.

I used a shaper with a 5Ē panel cutter to cut them. I cut it in one pass and the chips and dust fly. I would be skeptical using a router do do it.

These are beautiful! Glad you incorporated the tree’s imperfections in your designs. Give the pieces lots of character.

Here she is before the install. It turned out about the way I wanted it,
a simple rustic oak piece. Now on to making a linen closet to go on the left side of it.

I've started filling all the checks with black epoxy, and I love the way it looks, but that piece looks great with the checks.

How long does it take for the wood to dry before its ready to be used in a build? Did you have it dried or just air dried?

Air dried, I use 1 year per inch of thickness, as a rule of thumb.
I then check it with a moisture meter. Anything below 9% is acceptable for me.
With the humidity, in this area, it's hard to get it any drier.

Thanks everyone. No doubt that it's a lot of work and time getting the wood to this stage. I cut his particular oak a little over 3 years ago. Its been stickered in my shop since and like texastaxi stated the moisture going to get better than 8%-9% air dried. I did skip plane a lot of it reducing its thickness last year to help with drying. I milled some pecan recently and will soon take it and have it kiln dried to help speed the process up.

The lift was my father's and he it in the working with AC units in the 1970's. I have used it a lot over the years and its way up here on the usefullness chart. It's been a changer for sure.


I did cut the trees for this off my place which does adds to he background of this build.

Did get started on the linen cabinet. Final size is going to be 32" wide, 24" deep and 8ft tall. I decided to use oak veneer plywood for th car sides, back, dividers but will try to get some character wood for the face frame and doors.

No sir , we are thinking either granite or quartz for this.

I got started on the doors, lots of pieces machined and ready for assembly right after I get the raised panels made.

I didnít get any clear poly sprayed on it yet but the linen closet is almost done. This thing got real heavy after adding the solid panel doors.

Very well done and thanks for sharing. Are you adding any stain or just a clear poly? What is your preferred poly type and application? As in rattle can, brush or HVLP gun? Thanks again
