Build a Floating Vanity: Cabinet Drawers
Cabinetmaker Nancy Hiller demonstrates how to lay out drawer parts and use a router jig to make the dovetail joints to put them together.
A floating vanity is an engineering challenge. It doesn’t have legs and must be supported only by the wall. The connection between the wall and cabinets must be rock solid, and more importantly, the cabinets must be strong enough to support themselves, support the counter, and resist racking. In the following Master Carpenter video series, veteran cabinetmaker Nancy Hiller demonstrates how she assembled the cases, built drawers, strategized the façade, and figured out a great system of hardware to hang the vanity on the wall.
In this episode, Nancy builds the drawers out of solid maple with machine-cut dovetails and a plywood bottom that’s captured in a groove cut in the drawer’s interior.
