We're going to show you how to build a simple bathroom vanity. This project will demonstrate construction methods that you can apply to much larger cabinets. You know building your own cabinets like any other woodworking project is fun if you break it down into easy to manage steps, work carefully and patiently. So, along with your basic woodworking skills, you're in business yeah.In fact, a lot of people are building their own cabinets because they finally end up with a much better quality cabinet than if they bought one commercially, not only that they save a lot of money as well.
So if you join us down the workshop, we're going to get started, let's start by taking a look at a completed, bathroom vanity and all the different component parts so that when we start our building, you'll have an understanding of all the different steps and parts. Now down here this is called a kick plate and it indents usually about two to two and a half inches and allows for the space when the unit's installed. Then we build the base and attach the bottom shelf and start the Assembly of the shell or the carcass of the unit. The carcass is made out of 3/4 inch oak veneer plywood.
Now this piece back here is called a strong back and it helps tie the whole unit together. Since our unit is small and we'll be pushing it up to a wall with plumbing pipes, we decided not to use a quarter inch backing, but you may decide to do that on a larger unit. Okay, now on the front we attach a face frame and the face frame looks like this and it's unattached State and it creates the openings for the door and the false front. Since we're going to be putting a sink in here, we won't be using a drawer, but the false front is designed to look like a drawer and fill that space.
The steps required to build our vanity are cut the plywood and assemble the carcass, then assemble the face frame attach the face frame to the carcass, build the doors and the drawers, if required, sand and finish the cabinet, install the cabinet and attach the top and finally Install the drawers and the false front now, in addition to regular shop tools, we'll need a table, saw a router clamps and an orbital sander.
