Let the adhesive dry well. This plan worked well for us because the weather has been so nice, we were able to leave our garage door open all day (closing it at night). So after reading, and reading, and reading the instructions on the Waterlox website (thankfully they have a lot of information about using their finishes), I decided the best option would be to apply the finish to our vanity top in the garage and then install it after it was dry. To install the vanity top, I needed something on the vanity to attach the top to. Make sure the plywood has an even overhang on the front of the vanity. Use a drill to make starter holes, then use a jig saw to finish the cutting. I cut the 1×2 board for the very front of the vanity with my table saw. When it was done, I just cut of the excess along my wall line with the jig saw. Then it is time to cut holes for your sink. Use the cutting guide that comes with your sinks to cut the holes.
Flip the vanity over so the plywood is on top and use the plywood that was already cut to fit flush against the wall as a guide to cut away the excess boards. Give the entire vanity top a good sanding. Start by measuring carefully, then cut a piece of plywood that would be the size of your vanity top, minus the 3/4″ edging on the front (and sides if needed). Then keeping the wood flush against the wall, run the pencil along the entire piece of wood, drawing the line of the wall onto the plywood. I wanted the vanity top to hang over the front of the vanity 1″ so I cut my piece of wood 1/4″ bigger than the vanity. Using the construction adhesive and finishing nails, secure the edges to the vanity top. I decided to leave the few holes left by the finishing nails to the edging because I love the homemade, rustic look of it. Make sure to get all around the edging (even on the underside of it) and inside the sink holes. After sanding, make sure to clean off the surface of your wood so you have no lingering dust.
After 3 more coats, the surface had an almost glass-like film on the top of the entire vanity top. I feel like it looks nicer to have the seam in the boards on the side the same as you do on the top. They will be together through the washing and drying process and you won’t be looking all through a drawer trying to match colors, plus if you buy the same type of socks often, the pair will wear out together. This will create the denim jean texture! Pour some of the finish into a different container, only pour out a little bit because it will start to set up when exposed to oxygen and you should never return unused finish back to the container or it can start to gel. Though relatively quick drying (some in as little as 15 minutes), these sealants often contain chemical solvents, so ventilation is necessary during application.
Give them two or three coats, allowing drying time in between. Now it’s time to add the first coat of Waterlox Sealer & Finish! Our research showed that there were so many “slightly used” older motorhomes on the market that suited our comfort needs for short trips of only a two-three weeks at a time. Even though the plastic sheeting was tightly wrapped, I could see there were still small gaps between the plastic and the wood. 2 and get them installed (I am just waiting until the backsplash is finished so it’s not in the way, the sink is just sitting in the hole in the pictures cause I wanted to see it all together).

I will probably never have to clean out a barn in my life, but I still found this hub interesting! And don’t forget to check out Waterlox for your own DIY wood vanity top. I couldn’t believe the difference the new wood vanity top had on our room. I used 4- 1×4 boards across the top and a 1×2 board for the edging along the front. Cut these boards at 45 degree angles to. Now repeat with the remaining boards until you have covered your entire plywood with the solid wood boards. Now you will want to scribe the curves of the wall onto the plywood so you get a nice tight fit agains the wall. First of all, too much toilet paper will clog a toilet. But it looks like it cost so much more. Besides the lower cost for fuel, we are going to be short hop people, driving most often on Interstate highways but also on state roads to get to the campgrounds and parks that we wanted to access for our book research..
