To realize this double vanity unit we used some wood, some fabric, some resin, and the gfrc ( Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete).
The first stage consists in cutting template of the bowl, here, we have chooses a shape in curved and asymmetric.
Having to cut in the saw template, to place you two pieces of tube in PVC, in the place which you have chooses as thorough bungs. To stick pipes pvc and tightened your fabric by fixin it to sides by means of a stapler.
Aim, please.
Mix both components of your resin polyester by respecting doses, and spread with a brush. You can make it in several coats, cool , to have solid surface.
After drying, sanding complete of the room(part,play) in 120 then 180, 240, 400, and in the water.
Prepare your bottom of coffering, and rock the first skin of GFRC in the pistol, spread(display) then the concrete coat over the coat.
Decoffrer, to varnish, it is ready!

Step 1: Fabric forming

I  use some fabric, a stapler and my wooden  template. I fix my fabric  thanks to staples. Once the tense fabric, we throw the resin above, the resin tinged for controler the thicknesses.
After drying we shall sand the mold in the paper 120, then 240 then 400, then we shall pass in the sanding in the water up to a perfect glassis.
There is not more than to apply the gfrc to the mold, seen the quality of finish of the mold, the sanding of finish will be light.
