#38.9 – Sculpted Mahogany Vanity – Part 9 – Shaping the Integral Handles

I’ve been kinda quiet about the handles on this bathroom vanity. No better way to keep your stuff safe than leaving the handles off!

The funny gash down the middle of the frontmost panel is actually room for integral handles shaped from the panel itself. For some reason, I like furnishings with almost hidden handles or at least handles that don’t look like they could handle the drawer. In the case of this vanity, the handles try to follow the sculpted pattern.

This whole project is a bit of an exploration and I like how these came out.

Next episodes will cover reinforcing the handles, applying the fronts, and wet-sanding the whole thing. Getting there, slowly… knowing my luck, I’ll finish right when the energizing cooler weather arrives 🙂
