I was visiting my parents recently and heard them discussing a cabinet they wanted to buy for their bathroom. After looking at the catalog I decided I could build it for them from materials already in my shop (basically 3 pine boards that had been lying around for a few years). So I scaled it off the picture and the stated overall dimensions and this is what I came up with. Of course, I forgot to take any pictures at all till after I had delivered it the 2 and half hours away, but at least I remembered at some point. ;-]

It wasn’t particularly difficult nor did it require a lot of skill, but my Mom is happy and that floats my boat.

I’m sure I’ve got something still floating around the shop – I’ll take a look tonight.

Dave – Dimensions are (I think) – 67” tall, 12 1/2” wide, 9” deep for the cabinet. The top is 14 1/2” by 10”, flush with the back of the cabinet so it can stand close to the wall. The four corner posts are 1 1/8” square in section. I put what I had into a quick sketchup model and it looks like the picture, so the notes are probably pretty close.

I like the piece very much; nice job. I can’t tell from the photo; are the drawers and door inset?

They are inset. In case I’ve got my nomenclature messed up, that means to me that the drawer and door fronts are flush with the front of the carcase.

So today I decided to skip the forums and just review projects. Glad I did as I’ve gottensome good ideas, this being one of them. I also learned about “sketchup.” Seems a few of my lumberjock buddies use it.

Nice work Chris. I think I’ll do a modification of your design to fit my bathroom.
