    Default Building a custom vanity

    Does any one know the best approach to building a custom vanity? In the November 2007 edition of This Old House (page 31) is a similar design to what I am looking for. My biggest question is how to connect the face, back and side panels to the 4 leg supports. Any ideas would be much appreciated.

    My guess is that at the very least they'd be pocket screwed together (commercial production assembly ). If this was a custom built unit then it was either biscuit joined or mortise and tenoned. For this application I'd recommend biscuit or pocket screws for ease. Because this is a vanity which should also be secured to the wall, it doesn't need to be as strongly built as a stand alone table would be.
    I suffer from CDO ... Its like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!!!
