Custom Double Vanity

I built this double vanity to fit a narrow master bath with the counter depth needing to be a scant 20". Tall legs allowed unobstructed airflow from the floor grate, and extra deep drawers allowed for storage of the client's particularly tall shampoo bottles and hair dryer. Knotty pine was the client's requested material, and so I used extra care in material selection to be sure those knots do not cause the family structural problems down the line (I loved the look, too, but they can be tricky points of weakness!). The lacquer finish is particularly rugged in this bathroom environment and will not yellow over time. The countertop material is Siberian Elm with a tongue-in-groove strip of bocote down the middle, both exotic woods locally sourced and milled from trees removed by the city.
Constructed the old fashioned way using mortise and tenon and featuring reclaimed wine crates for the door panels. All drawers fully dovetailed front and back.
