Our bathroom cabinets are not the best looking. When the former owner remodeled the bathreoom by re-doing the counter top in tile & adding new doors to an old carcas that was it. The doors didnt even have wood panel inserts. Just primered particle board which you can see behind the doors now. the carcas is painted the same ugly grey.

I used a vacume press to veneer the wood onto the old primer panels

I bought some iron on veneer tape to band the carcas so ill post pics as i complete this.

The wood used is anigre from africa. I bought the veneer bundle 3 years ago for $7 and i have enough left to do another set just like this.

I slent $9 on the 1” edge banding tape and $19 on the 2” wide tape so in all it cost me $36 to make this look way better.
