Before modern plumbing, people got the water for their wake-up splash from pitchers and bowls, often kept in basins atop handsome wooden stands. Norm draws inspiration for his washstand from an example he sees during a visit to the Hancock Massachusetts Shaker Village. Built from pine, it features through-dovetail joinery in its flared top section and a drawer and raised-panel doors below.
