This is a medicine cabinet I made for a customer who wanted to mount it in a small main floor bathroom. the outside dimensions were 8.25” D x 15.25” W x 21” H and the actual outside storage dimensions were 6.75” D x 12.25” W x 19.25” H. The dimension of each cherry shelf was 5.375” D x 11” L. The etched removeable glass panel is double strength glass produced by three different firms: one provided the glass, a second firm cut the self adhesive stencil using high tech computer driven cutting equipment and a third firm applied the stencil to the glass and then sandblasted it to acquire the frosted appearance. Because the cabinet was relatively heavy, I did not want to anchor it to the wall using wall anchors through drywall. The challenge was installing the cabinet in the bathroom that had only one stud between two walls which required cutting the drywall in two places and installing two pieces of wood [top and bottom anchors] from one wall to the second wall for anchoring the cabinet. After installing the wood and restoring the plaster, the client painted the entire room and then I mounted the cabinet. The one photo shows the unpainted back of the cabinet that I later painted at the request of the client. I had to produce a solid wood panel that can be installed by the client.
