I made this medicine cabinet for our guest bathroom. It replaced the white sheet metal contractors grade cabinet that came with the house. It was a trial for me. I have never made a cabinet of any sort. I learned so much. The door joints are half lapped. I initially intended to use countersunk european style hinges but made an error in calculating the width I would need for those and had to modify the door to accept standar hinges. The box is Baltic Birch plywood and the rest is oak from a packing crate. I even salvaged the mirror from the old medicine cabinet. It is finished in Danish oil and paste wax.
Had a lot of fun making it.
Ps. I intended to do a stained glass insert but was over ruled by the two females in my home who said they need all the mirror they can get. I’m smarter than to try and fight that battle.
