BTW, Sonny, do you recall if your tyre is the orange one or the black one?

Owange brader...


Great. That seems to be of much better quality than the black one I got. My orange tires was mangled by my dog so I had to buy a new set and tried the black one. Pagbalik mo, will pick up your tires. Palitan ko na lang. Thanks!

Decided to build the sides using leftover walnut. SInce we’re going for a rustic look, rounded the edges of the walnut planks to look like shiplapped somewhat.

Then wiped epoxy resin on the tops to make them waterproof.

Also tried my hand at cerussing (pickling) on the body of the smaller vanity to lighten it as the American Teak is already a bit heavy looking.

Just use cloth for wipe on epoxy resin?

I use the white rubber squeegee from Polymer Products. It’s expensive ~P700 but worth it. Makes quick work on spreading epoxy resin.

Painted the insides and did ceruse (pickling) on the frame for a bit of an aged rustic look.

Forgot to post this sometime back.

For the larger Vanity, the center doors is glued up from 4 pieces of bookmatched walnut. Had to carefully select and cut the pieces so that, when glued, the grain align and they appear to be from a singular piece.

Yes. All the walls are white or slightly off white. Both bath's tiles are some kind of white stone. Perfect contrast to the vanities.
