This small cabinet was designed to hold everything a gal needs to style her hair. I did it in alder. The side panels, top and bottom panels and the inside panel under the stainless steel inserts are all glue ups. This was my first installation of soft close drawer slides. They were provided by my customer who salvaged them from a kitchen remodel. No brand name and obviously imported from China, The quality was poor. They had no front to back adjustment provisions. They were attached to the cabinet sides instead of rear brackets. Fortunately there were dozens of screw holes. Why a couple of the holes on each side weren’t slotted horizontally like all other slides is beyond me. It would have made the initial front to back positioning much easier and eliminated removing screws, repositioning and driving more screws into new holes when the inset drawers didn’t quite flush out on the initial positioning.
The two functional drawers are 1/2” baltic birch with white melamine bottoms. The third (top) drawer is a false front. The cabinet is shown prior to staining and finishing which was going to be done by the customer.
The 6 inch deep stainless steel pots will hold hair blowers, curling irons and other styling equipment and accessories.
I provided the sketch for the customer so she could choose inset or overlay drawers.
