Vanity drawer cut-out question
I'm having a vanity built for my very, very small bathroom. It will be a furniture-style vanity on legs. I've seen tons of pictures online (and even at Ikea) of vanities that maximize space by having a cut-around in the top drawer so the drawer will fit around pipes but still function as a drawer.
I showed my cabinetmaker some pictures and he said it's not a good idea because it's too difficult to access the pipes if/when you need to. Instead he's suggesting a false drawer front with hinges.
Anyone have any experience with a cut-around in your vanity drawer? Is my cabinetmaker correct?
