This is a small cabinet I designed and built for my bathroom. I had to keep it as small as possible due to space limitations, but wanted it wide enough to hold a couple of magazines and toilet paper underneath. It’s my first time making raised panel doors. I’ve thought of a couple of things I wish I’d done a bit different, but overall I’m very proud of this project. Not that anyone will see it, but I’ve improved my back panel technique. I used to just tack on a thin piece. Then I started making a little rabbit for the panel to sit flush in. This time I cut grooves in the back stiles for the panel to slide in.

Nice job, few pics of inside and joints would be fun to look at.

Thank you and here you go. I know I used the wrong hinge for this situation, but I wanted antique bronze and this was the best I could figure out. Thanks for looking and please give and constrictive criticism you think of.

Nice job. It looks like it serves the purpose quite well. Honing your construction techniques is a great move in the right direction. Keep up the good work.

Very nice. The raised panels look great.

That’s a nice looking cabinet for the bathroom. The size of the magazine shelf should alleviate the tendency to accumulate a library in the bathroom! The construction of the back looks good enough to show if you ever want to use the cabinet in the middle of a room.

You chose the same place to practice your first raised panel construction as I did!

Thank you one and all for your kind comments. They mean a lot to me. L/W….......I checked out your cabinet: awesome! I love how your raised panels have the cove to them. I made mine fast and quick on the TS with the blade tipped to 30 deg.

I like it. It turned out nice. I made my first raised panel doors like you did last Spring. In fact it’s been so long ago, I’d have to learn it all over again.

Thanks. It was a bit scary until I got the jig working right. I need to learn to take notes or pics of my projects in progress as I too forget how I did something. I also need to remember when I’m doing something for the first time that I have a shelf of books to help my bad memory. lol

That’s a useful cabinet & just from your write-up you have obviously learnt new techniques & solved problems that previously would have stumped you, so in my book your little cabinet is priceless. Thanks for sharing
God bless
