I have finally finished the woodworking part of this vanity for my bathroom.
It is made from walnut.
I plan on making a hammered copper sink, (any tips?) for it and the topping
it with a granite top.

I'm contemplating making vanities for our new bathrooms. Let's just say
that yours is a bit nicer than what I had in mind.
I'd start with a sheet of copper and a hammer. The rest is left as an
exercise for the reader. ;-)
That will look great. For our new bathroom, I'm contemplating a soapstone
top. I saw a kitchen display at Expo that used it and I thought it looked
awesome. For a kitchen, it has some upkeep issues, but it might work out in
the bathroom for me.
You will need a method of annealing the copper since it will 'work
harden' after being hammered. And you need a pickling solution to
quench the metal and remove the surface oxidation.
If you planned method is to stretch the copper you will want to start
with a fairly heavy guage.
Use a polished hammer and consider a specialty hammer for copperwork.
