Bathroom Vanity Suggestion

3 posts in this topic

Ok, after getting a sweet deal on a granite "returned" top, I now have to rebuild my vanity or build a new one. The new top is 4" shorter (56" top compared to 60" top) on the current vanity. I'm debating ripping out the old vanity and slicing 4" off the middle, pocket screw it back together a make 2 new middle drawers. Or just build a new vanity to the correct size I need and use the same drawers and hardware. I have about a weekend to pull this off so I figured with it might be easier to just build a new vanity during the week and slap it in on the weekend. Any thoughts or suggestions....

Make a new vanity. By the time you dink around trying to retrofit something that will not look right in the end, you could have a new vanity done.

There is a building supply outlet store in Eagan right off of hwy 55 that has ALOT of one of a kind vanities. You might be able to find one there that fits the size you need. They are open until 4pm weekdays and until 1 or 2 on saturdays.

They have some that are very high end vanities that are sold very cheap considering the quality. They also have everything else down to the very low end stuff that you can pick up for $40 or so.

You could probably pick something pretty nice up for under $200 and save yourself the time of building something. I have seen some solid cherry vanities that are 60+ inches that they sell for under $300, complete with dove tailing and reinforced drawers.

In my opinion building projects aren't the time to cut corners so I would not retro fit your old vanity. Why put a nice piece of granite on a patch job? The point of the granite is to make the vanity look better so I would make sure I was putting the granite on top of something that is worthy of having granite put on it in the first place whether you spend the time to building something nice or if you spend the money to buy something nice.

    • Looking at buying a tandem axle toy hauler ice house that can haul my Polaris General. Ive looked at Firebrand, Yetti, and Glacier. I like Firebrand the most but I want the Happi jac bed and they dont think General will fit.  Does anyone own a toy hauler with happi jac that will fit a full size side x side. Mine is 74'' tall and that's the issue.
    • I hunt zone 1.  Very interesting to see those numbers.  From what I have seen the herd is showing signs of rebound in our neighborhood.  We're a ways off from being able to tolerate hunters choice, but we're seeing deer again finally.  I agree the herd is in better shape than 2-3 years ago when many people saw no deer and no signs of deer.     So what does it all mean?  I suspect the widespread pain of the glut in major swaths of zone 1 for the dark years has woke some up to the idea of passing does.  There was certainly more opportunity with fewer bucks-only zones and larger doe tag numbers in certain DPAs.    What will be interesting is how the DNR responds to more deer on the landscape up here but fewer does being shot.  We had two doe tags in our group this year and we proudly tossed them in the fire, unfilled, at the end of season.

    • I have this problem from time to time but not often.  Sometimes there are little bubbles on the bottom of the transducer and sometimes the ducer isn't below the ice, sometimes it just takes 5 or 10 minutes of sitting in the hole before it starts to pick up the jig.  Other times it works flawlessly.
    • Bingo.  Everything is going good so far.   Not that I would need to answer someone who wasted their vote but being tomorrow will be a great day I thought I'd drop you a line.     The so called Libertarians in silly town.
    • I hate to break your bubble, but your vote and other Trump voters in Minnesota were wasted votes the same as you say those who voted 3rd party were wasted.
