This is a vanity made from Quarter Sawn White Oak which has been distressed with a drill operated coarse wire brush to open up and dig out the grain.  The doors, drawer fronts and side panel are of the Shaker style.  The drawers are made from Euro plywood, dove tailed and then installed on Blum soft close Tandem slides.  The Doors swing on Blum soft close Euro hinges.

It has been colored with a custom made stain.   The stain was a mix of a White Pickle, a medium Gray and some Orange dye.  It was sprayed on and rubbed to the suited transparency.  The Red Oak legs were bleached with a 2 part bleach to remove their color before staining. It was topcoated with MLC Krystal in a dull sheen.
