we have done a small remodel of part of our bathroom, our bathroom is divided into two parts…the one with the head and then the shower area..i made the door that separates the two areas, well a few weeks ago we tiled the floor in the shower area , we had the extra towels sitting in a small old oak child’s rocking chair…my wife liked it…but we decided to move the towels out of there and take the chair out, so i built a new cabinet for the towels. The cabinet case is made from solid oak, the wood came from an oak tree that was in front of our church, it had been hit by lightning and half the tree died, so the tree was removed and i paid to have the tree taken to the sawyer and milled…ive had it now for about 8 years and think its plenty dried…lol…the bottom shelf sits in a 3/4 datto, and the rest is held together with screws and the holes are plugged with walnut. the door is made of red cedar, with the joinery being through tenons, pined with walnut. the main panel is bead board , and it rests in a 3/8 wide rabbit on the back of the door, and the project is finished with three coats of semi gloss polyurethane. small project, long explanation , a boring Saturday to boot…hence long explanation….lol…thanks for looking…...P.S..and as a after post bonus…this is a beautiful piece of antique southern heart pine board that was planed of the white paint that covered this…this is candy to me…aint it just beautiful…look at them growth lines…

Another of your rustic pieces that fits snugly into your style and into your house..and the longer than average [for you] explanation finishes off the post nicely.
Another nice piece in a long line of projects.
BTW hope the back is better.

Grizzman: A great looking cabinet. Nice job on the construction.

The G&G style pegs are very nice.

Hey Grizz, nice cabinet. Love the color mixes. So the towels in the rocking chair were not working for momma. huh? Is that a elk horn on the wall? Towel holder? Interesting. Keep it up brother, boring Saturdays turn into interesting new projects. Have a great Easter and thank God for your many blessings.

Great job, Grizz. I love the walnut plugs.
I also love the bead board… a little Cape Cod-like to me!

Grizz, I am so glad to see you back in your shop. Awesome job on the cabinet. Your cabinet should be put in a Country sampler magazine. Great work.
