Built using cherry and tiger maple, this was made just after my 10 year old was diagnosed with T1D. This will hold all his diabetes supply’s and is Mobil:)

Great looking cabinet.

Bummer about the diagnosis. T1D is a challenge, but hopefully the recent advances will make it more manageable.

this looks awesome, and timely too as November is Diabetes awareness month.

Beautiful cabinet!

I was diagnosed with T1D at the age of 13 months. 38 years ago! It’s not as bad as people make it out to be sometimes. Good luck with everything and that cabinet looks great!

I was diagnosed at age 28 with T1 which is not too typical. Keep up the vigilance, you guys are his pancreas now.

Cabinet is beautiful, I’m sure one day he will deeply appreciate it (if he doesn’t already!)

Fantastic cabinet for the supplies – I get to keep mine in a bathroom closet. I was also diagnosed with Type I, also at an untypical age (33), followed by my mother at age 62. If you are able to, get the boy a pump – it changes everything for the better.

little off subject, but he does love his cabinet, and have to be honest, was a very emotional build, realizing the complexity of the disease and all the draw divisions it would require to hold all his supplies. My heart truly goes out to all you who face the day to day challenges T1D imposes on you. He uses a Tandem insulin pump and a Dexcom CGM that keeps me and my wife updated at all times:)
thanks for the post, it means a lot to us;)
