Rick, great looking project, I built one the same way for my master bathroom. Wasted wall space so did a built in out of Oak just like it only a little smaller. I really like the mirror background in your one! How did you cut the glass shelves and finish the edges? How thick is the glass? Do you have special tools or special method? Sorry for all the questions.

Great job!!!

Mike:

The Mirrored Back in mine was an after thought. I originally put in a Pine Back and it just “Didn’t Work”. Fortunately it was only Spot Glued with PL Premium, to the back side of the 1/2” drywall, the other side of which faces into the KItchen. No picture Hanging from that side now that it’s a mirror!! ...LOL…

The Glass? This is Complex, so pay close attention! I took the measurements for the Mirrored Back, and Shelves, and decided on 6 Shelves, Bevelled all sides. They are both 1/4” Tempered Glass. Then …...I got into my Car drove to my Glass Supplier and ordered them all. ....LOL…. I think the Bill was about $85.00 but well worth it.

There is also a Halogen, adjustable, display light in the top controlled by a Dimmer, located beside the Kitchen Door in the hallway. Having that and the Mirrored Back lights it up nicely. (When Company Comes ;-} ).

You’re right about making use of empty wall space. I noticed that you have done a couple of Nice Sword Holders. I have 2 Samurai, 1 Ninja and a Suicide Sword/Knife (Can’t spell the name). They’re on top of my Entertainment Unit and I was just about to make a Wall Hung Rack for them. But MAYBE this might work? Off the top of my head ..taking one stud out would give me about 30+ inches…not enough. More thought required.

BUT. I have 2 Full Baths upstairs and want to get rid of the DUMB Paper Holders. As you did I will probably do a Recess Holder/Extra Rolls/Magazine type of thing.

“Sorry for all the questions”. Don’t be! It’s one of the Great Things about this Site “All Of Us Sharing Our Knowledge” and it’s always my pleasure to do so.
