Shaker Style Bathroom Vanity

I just completed a bathroom project that I detailed in another post.  I wanted to show more detail related to the shaker style vanity I built for the project.   The cabinet is built from pre-finished maple ply overlaid with solid poplar.   The drawers are dovetailed maple and the top is solid walnut with a vessel sink.  The finish is painted and then covered in clear water based policy.

Full Bathroom Rennovation

I just completed our bathroom renovation.  The bathroom was in very rough shape and was original to the house from 1979.   This project required a full gut job, electrical, plumbing, tile, cabinetry and a lot of finish work.  I found a few surprises along the way including a liquid nailed drain part and a pan on the ceiling below to catch a leaking fitting.

All of the tiled surfaces were done with 12*24 porcelain tile and set on a waterproof red guard membrane.   The tub is a kohler cast iron tub that took six friends to get into place.  I build the vanity to look like a piece of furniture.  The main cabinet is poplar, the drawers are dovetailed maple, the top is solid walnut with a vessel sink.  It was a lot of work but now I don’t think I can wait to redo the master bath.

Update Laundry Room

I recently completed the laundry room project for our house.  I used the same porcelain tile that I used in the half bath and built custom cabinetry for the space.  The countertop is made from Sapele, and the cabinets are painted solid poplar frames and doors.   I added LED undercabinet lighting and build a storage bench for the space.

Half Bath Renovation

I finally got around to remodeling the half bath at our house.  The walls were covered in wall paper and didn’t match our style.   I removed the wall paper which was a horrible experience and repaired all the walls.  The floor is a porcelain tile made to look like wood.  I added a few wood touches (mirror and shelf) from the red elm tree we took down in our yard earlier this year.   The toilet is touch-less with a simple pedestal sink.

Wood Radiator Covers

Spent some time over the weekend building a few radiator covers with a friend for his house remodel.  They are constructed of solid pine and have a more classic shaker style.

 

Custom Wine Racks

I was asked to build a set of custom wine racks to fit a specific location in a clients basement.  The racks were designed in the x-brace style and were constructed from solid pine planks.  It was amazing just how much lumber was required to build the two racks.  In the end I used 108 linear feet of pine 1×12.   I used a palm router to ease round some of the edges and everything is dado fit.   Just some final sanding an this project will be complete.

Saving an Antique Dresser

This dresser was in bad shape when some friends asked if I could help.  The dresser looked great from the outside but the drawers were in horrible shape.  The drawers were not square and in places has worn almost all the way through.   There was no actual drawer hardware and the drawers did not function.   The drawers themselves were not salvageable so I cut off the drawer front and converted it to a front only and attached it to new dovetail poplar drawers with cabinet grade slides.
