Build a Floating Vanity: Cut and Finish Door and Drawer Faces
Learn how to lay out and cut door and drawer faces so that the grain is continuous across the entire front of the vanity.
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 shows how she lays out and cuts door and drawer faces from a custom veneered sheet of MDF so that the grain of the cherry wood is continuous across the entire front of the vanity.
