Modified desk into makeup vanity

Submitted by jlfreck23 on Mon, 12/14/2020 - 19:22

I built this for my adult daughter’s Christmas present. I modified the plan to have three drawers instead of the cubby. I also tapered the bottom of the legs. I added a back piece to hold a mirror. I also added door knobs to the back for necklaces.

The top and the back board are both 4 boards glued and clamped together. I finished the edges of the top, drawer fronts, and the back board with an ogee router bit.

Estimated Cost
$140 (lumber is expensive right now)

Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Type of Wood
Pine with maple plywood for the panels.
Finish Used
Mahogany stain on the top and drawer faces. It is a golden oak stain for the base. Finished with a satin polyurethane.
