Bath Vanity Update

The day job has been taking most of my time so progress on the bath vanity is slow. I looked at using a wood top and tried several finishes but all but the Applebee's bar finish water spotted. It's a shame but it is what it is....ordered an Ebony composite top for the base, it should look OK.

I've made the boxes for the drawers, used Soft Maple.  It has been awhile since my last use of Soft Maple, I forgot how nice it is to work.

Here is the set up for cleaning up the drawer boxes:

And the box cleaned up:

    I remember this set-up proposed by Marty Blake on Lumberjock.
    What is your own experience with it?
    As you also have that possibility, what are the pluses compared to the split benchtop use?

  2. Sylvain,

    It provides a very solid platform that is easily adjusted to fit what ever box you are working one. It works so well I may make several of different sizes and better wood.

    As far as the split top goes, I can't remember the last time I used the split to help support a work piece. It has its advantages but helping clamp work isn't one of 'em. Of course some will disagree.
