Took the clamps off the upper vanity today and put some filler on needed areas. Flush routed the edge of the FF to the side of the cabinet and sanded smooth. Sanded the flutes nice and smooth, broke most of the edges.

Setup 2 shapers with a cope and stick for a Shaker door setup. Made the parts list, cut the parts, coped the ends and ran the stick cut for 6 drawers and 4 doors. Setup the panel cutter and made some MDF panels. Primed the panels and glued up the doors and drawer fronts.

Fit the doors and drawer fronts today and worked on fitting the two countertops to the sink so they would be nice and flush. Had to put a 37º miter x 32º bevel on the front edge where the counter touches the sink, plus a slight concave curve to make it fit nice. Did the test angles on a separate board and with the chopsaw. But had to use a jigsaw to make the cuts on the counter.

Put the lower, upper, 2 countertops and the sink together and things are fitting well. Now the only question left for them is if they want to keep the longer overhangs on the left and right (3") or keep them equal with the front which is 1". It'll give them more countertop real estate.

I am just glad my little beam install post went up before Resta posted. Who can follow that? Your work is always amazing!!
dude: anybody who has done an in place beam appreciates what you did, and how hard it is not to have it look like hack when done.

Primed 48' of crown and delivered it to the site. Took measurements for the extended countertops and they'll fit.

Back to the shop and worked the counters, cut them to length, rounded the edges, drilled some holes to attach the upper, drilled and tapped 2 holes in the hanging tabs on the back of the sink so it could be attached to the upper.

Put a couple coats of primer on the doors and drawer fronts, made the backs, drilled the holes for the electrical boxes for the sconces, taped the electrical box holes off. Ran some molding for the top of the upper, mitered and installed it.

Basically that damn sink is what is slowing this project down.

Just about everything has primer on it now. The mirror door 26mm cup hinges are coming in tomorrow so I'll see if I can use the doors I made or not. Plus my 1/4"D flush cut router bit bearing seems be on it's last leg and I don't trust it. I ordered 2 new ones which will be here tomorrow too. So I can turn the slot into a rabbet so the mirror can go in.
