Bathroom Vanity Cabinet

(c) 2007 Chris Baylor licensed to About.com, Inc.
One way to improve the look and functionality of a bathroom is with a well-built, attractive bathroom vanity cabinet. While bathroom vanity cabinets can be relatively expensive to buy, they're not at all difficult to build.

In this set of free woodworking plans, follow step-by-step through the process of building a 36" wide, 24" deep and 32" tall bathroom vanity cabinet. This set of plans covers much of the basics of cabinet building. Once you understand the basics of cabinetry, you'll be able to make many different types of cabinets.

While this may be a bit larger than the average bathroom vanity cabinet, with a large open compartment with two doors above a deep drawer, it can be easily modified to accommodate pretty much any size of bathroom vanity countertop. The doors and drawer front are quite simple, but one could easily add a raised panel drawer front and doors to accentuate the cabinet.
