My wife wanted somewhere to store all the toilet paper she buys in bulk (4 teenagers) so I decided to build her this solid cherry cabinet. After pricing several different types of wood locally, I found that cherry was actually one of the cheapest since pine was a no-go per the wife. This will hold 36 rolls. The sides, top, base, and door were milled to ¾” and the shelves were resawn to ½”. As of now, the door frame holds a sheet of plexiglass that I’ll replace with a 14” x 47” mirror once it arrives. I finished it with a several layers of HVLP-sprayed lacquer to keep the natural wood look and feel.

Your toilet paper rolls will tank you for the luxurious accommodation.

Move the beautiful cabinet into the living room. Buy a Toto Washlet. Problem solved!
