Vanity and backsplash


Hello all.

I just recently built the vanity and tiled the backsplash to finish a bath remodel I started about 3 years ago. (yes, 3 years lol) The vanity is my first real wood working project and I think it turned out pretty well considering I made all the large cuts with a jig saw or a circular saw. Little tip: Pocket screws are GREAT for making face frames and doors. Very easy to use for a novice like myself.

Hope the pics work.

Thanks for the kind words. The wife and I both wish it had been done a lot sooner. But due to indecision about what we wanted there and laziness on my part, I could never seem to get the vanity taken care off. I was laid off in July, so I had no more excuses about not having the time. lol

The vanity was actually pretty simple to build. I made 3 plywood boxes. Put them in place and screwed them together. Then I cut some 2 inch poplar to make the face frame and door frames. I used pocket screws to assemble those. Put a piece of luan on the back of the doors and put some molding on the front to make it look like recessed panels.
