(Note the strip at the bottom is the natural unstained color of the wood)
1b. Vanity top - top side
Here is a shot of part of the vanity top where some of the finish has
2. Here is the backside of one of the doors (I'm not sure if it is the
same wood as the top)
Thanks for the help!!!
Just curious. What makes you say ply rather than real full-thickness
wood. Looking at the rough edges (around the sink cutout), it doesn't
"look" like plywood (or at least like any modern version of plywood).
OK. I have heard of Luan plywood, but this again looks like solid wood
and not plywood - is that possible?
Solid-core (cabinet ply). I didn't look at anything except one face
shot owing to very slow dialup. It's ply veneer on the face. Look more
carefully and I suspect you'll be able to see the thin surfaces. Look
at an end instead of a side and you'll likely be able to see the core
strips as well (assuming they're not faced or something).
Yes, that's possible altho again could be a solid-core ply.
This is Luan. There is a very standard method for refinishing Luan.
Carefully go around the entire edge of the vanity with a razor knife
to break any caulking seal. Carefully pry the entire vanity away from
the wall and floor. Carefully dismantle enitire vanity with long
swinging glances of a 2 lb sledge hammer. Carefully sweep up the
debris and place in a dumpster. Drive to Home Depot, find the bathroom
vanity isle and select a new vanity.
