I just wanted to post this to prove that I have been working on something other than my bandsaw in the shop lately. These are just some quick projects I have been meaning to make for the bathroom for a long time.

Our bathroom is tiny, and had no storage for anything. So yesterday I built the triangle cabinet, the magazine holder and the wall cabinet to match the vanity. I had a very small budget of time and money for these projects, because we are renters and we’re not sure how long we will even be at this place. I am also not a big fan of oak, but they had to match the vanity. I kept the design and construction as simple and quick as I possibly could.

But when all was said and done, I was pretty pleased with how these simple projects came out and they really added a lot to the small bathroom. It feels a lot more like a room now.

The wall cabinet holds toilet paper (we had to have some place to put it other than in the package on the floor!) and the triangle cabinet holds hair and misc. products.

Construction: Solid oak and oak veneer plywood with screws and biscuits.

-- Happy woodworking!

Nice job Blake – you almost even matched the seat to the convenience.

Nice one – I particulary like the triangular cabinet but the magazine holder next to it is supreme!

These are very attractive and functional additions to the bathroom, Blake. I think you should ask the landlord for a break on next month’s rent. :-)

Great, Blake! It’s hard to resist going all-out. You found a really nice balance of simple and attractive.

Very nice. I wasn’t worried about you not working on anything. I am sure that your to do list is just as full as the rest of us. These are nice pieces that really add a lot of storage to your bathroom.
