It's been painted. Paint has a green hue in my spray room but looks like BM Swan White in LED and Sunlight, which is the primary light sources in the house.

Got my router bit and hinges and the mirror frames will work as they are. To bad I have to prime and paint them now.





And the claw feet

Got the lower cabinet put together. Drawer slides, drawer fronts, made the back and clear coated it. Needs to be attached.



Here's the upper painted. I put the back on it and the doors. No pics of it put together.



Here's one of the two Walnut counters. Stained it with a 1/2 strength American Walnut and 3 coats of 2K sealer to fill the grain and 1 coat of 2K polyurethane.



They sold me a slow close mechanism, but the mount wouldn't work with the inset door. So I pulled apart one of my face frame adapter plates and replaced the original plate with the plastic plate used to mount the slow close device. Worked out really well and looks good with all metal.



Tomorrow it all goes into the house.

Vanity is installed. Lights, outlets and the sink/faucet need to be installed. The upper doors will have mirrors and the center open shelf will have three 3/8" glass shelves and a light above.

The electricians screwed up the placement of the upper wires. It was suppose to be 27" (left & right) off center of the cabinet. They did it off the center of the wall which pushed the wires 8" to the right. The left hole was buried under the cabinet, the right hole was outside the cabinet. Nice that the sheetrockers were there to patch it up nice.

I screwed up on the height of the cabinet to line up with the plumbing by 1/4". My cabinet was to tall. Simple fix, open the sheetrock a bit and unscrew 3 screws and move the plumbing up 1/4".

Says right in the instructions it's not designed to be used in a countertop. It is suppose to be hung from a wall bracket.

Since I've been dealing with it for a while now, it's grown on me.

Is it just rough casting on the underside? I have to agree, it is odd they chose that style. Did you have to set it in caulking around your cabinet to protect the wood from water

It'll have be set in bright white silicone after the plumber gets things setup. Right now its just trapped in place. At 100 lbs it won't move much anyway.

It's not a raw casting. It has a black coating on it. It's designed to be exposed.

13 HP servers bought at government auction for 800$

Will likely hold on to a few of them for personal use and will sell the others.

Simple vinyl plank floor, but first time I used a multiple width product... It's a step up from the standard look imo.

The electrician came by last Friday. The plumber was here today. Had to help him take the sink in and out a few times. Had to protect my countertops.

Made some beaded tongue and groove, 6" and 4". Sanded, sealed the rear, primed the front in a goldish color and delivered it last Friday. Got the beaded wainscot installed today.

Client liked the bedroom floor I did for them a few months back. They are doing the rest of the basement in an acid stain. Finished up the game room half and a little side room. Still working the rest. These pictures don't do it justice.
Turned out real nice. People are very happy.

That's something you don't see every day. Looks awesome.

It'd be cool to know how to do it.

I've done a lot in this house (made all alder door jambs from scratch , hung lots of beams and beam grids, bla bla bla) but this was my first time to make 6" wide corbels on the band saw. They actually turned out great. Can't wait to finish this one. Especially since it's an hour away.
