      my wifes birthday is today and as soon as this video was posted I knew I wanted to make her this. I wrapped it in gift paper she just got home from work. she opened it and freaked out. she asks me where I got it from and I laugh and say remember the weekend I was at my parents helping my dad? well I was using his garage to make you this. Thank you for this video it made her day and itll make my night ;-) haha

      DIY Creators i think you should have painted the vanity lid gloss black. That would have gone so well with the legs.

    Swap out the bulbs with LED bulbs and that will get rid of the heat and save some money.

    How far from the margin you drilled the holes for the hinge cups? It looks to me they're a little too far, but still it look like the covers are closing just fine so i'm just a little curious about that.

    Really enjoying the content on your channel!
    So my grandpa died a while back but left me a few copies of a magazine called "Leatherneck" which is a military magazine. The copies are from WW2 and I want to build a display frame or two but not sure where to start. I wanted the frame to look vintage since magazines are quite old and classic. Also wanted to illuminate the magazines inside of the frame. Wondering if you have a build that could capture just that?

    I can also see how a person could combine this project with your wall mounted desk project and have a wall mounted vanity.
    Nice projects and great video quality.

    i may not need a make up vanity but the concept be great for a pc gamer desk. the compartments be swapped out for space for pc components. the doors will allow easy access and future part upgrades. maybe an see through glass panel for them baller builders.

    Great job! Don't know that I need a vanity, but I think this is a great starting point for a small maker's desk to use in the house. Perfect for small electronic, craft, or other projects that won't require me to go all the way out to the shop when inspiration strikes. And the fact I can keep it all hidden in a sleek exterior means my wife won't groan every time she walks by it. 😉

    Keep doin' what you're doin'!

    Awesome build. I will have to do this with my daughter. She loved the looks and idea of it. She is 6, so it should be pretty cool. I think we will put drawers on the sides so she won't dump items behind the vanity. The great thing about plans is they can be adjusted. Again thanks for the awesome videos.

    love the channel, im subscribed. love the vanity too, my only concern is the lights. those should be in a electrical box as what you did is not to code. you could also consider those pot lights that have a built in box for the wiring.

    Alright Glen, yet another nice and detailed video, keep the level up!
    I'll add some "critics" (as always: rather second thoughts on my terms ^^) and an idea for videos like that afterwards.

    About the build:
    I was first wondering about the positioning of the bulb-equipment. You routed that out (naturally a good idea), but why not a little more, like adding depth into the wood? Just by routing, lets say an inch or two more to a degree, you could add some depth to the look (its a vanity after all ^^). also, I understand the design decision, but perhaps a touch of color would have fit here too. No less, I was also wondering second here, if this area couldn't be without paint and instead be marked by some kind of mirroring foil (around the depth) so that the "mirroring size" itself is enlarged.
    As for the mirror myself - as soon as it gets scratches or breaks to some part (e.g. hair dryer flying into it), you need to physically break it out. Why not a 'simple' screw-in holder? Or, perhaps - with some extra effort - a mirror on a guiding pole, that allows to be moved back and forth (e.g. like a pipe that goes vertically in the middle behind the mirror and that alows for it to move in a certain angle), so that the person using the desk can actually push it to the sides as needed. Not to mention a "slide into the background" function, in case it stands not (!) against a wall... and many other options...
    Also, I was a little worried about the structural integrity of the desk. Consider a person holding her elbows and her upper body on it, would it still stand? I am not entirely sure of the strength of the wood, so perhaps a little bit more extra stability might be necessary, for some users at least. ^^
    The side chests almost scream for an additional video called "additional compartment options for the vanity" :D

    As for the video itself:
    I was wondering, if you ever decide to build something bigger (in terms of time spent to build it, not necessarily dimensions) like a dining-room wardrobe, with all the open shelves for dishes, cabinets for the cutlery, design options, details etc... (or a whole series where you also add the table, chairs etc. in one fitting style for a whole room), you might want to split the video into multiple parts. Just add a little of your face and commentary, talking about issues and solutions, the material you used or problems that might occur if others copy it. What inspired you to build it (reasons) and so on... the length will always come up to this video, but due to the complexity, a multi-part-series keeps your viewers just as much at attention, as this. Plus: Bigger projects call for more creativity to unleash...

    Just my two cents worth of oppinion as always.
    Oh, how about a kids-toy-box next, or something like that? Have fun building!

    Looks great. but would need discipline to keep the top clear of stuff in order to access the side storage boxes. I think I would do it with drawers on the sides so at least you can still access the storage when things are laid out on the table

    Don't let these cheap bastards get you down. I love what you do and if you have to sell the plans to recoop some of the costs for these project that YOU create then I really don't see the problem. I would have went a different way with the wood/paint combo on this particular project. It seems that the natural wood center clashes too hard with the paint and makes it look, well, unfinished. Maybe if you were not so good painting or used crappy legs it would look different. But as you said, it all comes down to personal preference on the finish. Keep up the good work!
