Sink bowl hitting divider.

Looks like a little cutting is in order.

And a narrower drawer...or maybe a shorter side.

BTDT. Client gave me the sink top specs, then she bought a different one. Change order!

Looks like there might enough meat there to cut out a profile for the sink bowl and it will miss the drawer side. No one will see that design mod.

No mods needed for drawers like Lew stated.

Sweet adaptation. 

That could be a song title. 

"Sweet adaptation, you make me smile...

"Sweet adaptation, with just a router and a file...

"No more worried stares...

"No more sink hole scares...

" It fits like a glove

" Oh, how I love...

" My sweet adaptations...

Dang, Gene that was good!

So I got the grinder and cut a chamfer into it and that gave me just enough. 

Well like an old carpenter used to tell me, "ya' ain't gonna' see that from the middle of the road!" ;) I gotta' say it looks pretty darn nice from where I sit! :)

Wouldn't have had to do that on a big box vanity because it (a) probably wouldn't have had a divider to begin with or if it did probably would have only been 1/4" covered chip board. Yours will far outlast the appraiser...maybe a couple of appraisers.:D

Thank you for the comments guys, they are very encouraging. We got a lot done today since this morning!

I'm pooped! My goal was to paint tonight, but it'll have to happen in the morning, Mrs. Morris still needs to go out with the kids and pick up a quart. So I couldn't paint even if I wanted too, thank goodness!

Great Work! Also, nice adjustment to the curve the sink top threw you.

One primer one coat I am thinking Gene. If it needs more I can paint in place. Leaks! Surely you jest!:lol:

Appraiser is coming Tuesday. :o

Not pictured, I just installed the Blum Tandems before I closed up shop, I wanted to get those in before the sink goes over the top, I'll install the vanity without doors and drawers, as long as it's functional we are good to go.

Done and installed. Long day!

Still have doors and drawers to make, but the vanity is bolted to the wall and the sink is in with running water. 

 

The appraisal needed an operational vanity, they got one.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
