Another Medicine Cabinet

The cabinet was made with poplar and painted with an oil based paint. The feature that I added over the last few years is the slotted wood at the back. This gives the user the ability to hit at least one stud, maybe two and adjust the cabinet to its desired position on the wall. Installation has become a whole lot easier since one fastener can be screwed into the wall and the second can be add with a level on the bottom shelf to guide the installer.

Very nice.
Did you buy frosted glass or use the spray?

Great cabinet….you could also hang this with a french cleat (I use them alot for wall mounted cabinets….really convenient for when you need to re-paint a room).

ohwoodeye I purchased double strength glass and then took it to an art studio that works with glass where they frosted it by sandblasting. They always warn the glass might break but it hasn’t yet.

Love that soft green, made even softer through the looking glass.
