Cherry and walnut bathroom cabinet. Finished with bush oil finish.

The bottom door did not open all the way. So I inlaid some magnets in the door and mounted the hinges. Now the door is held in place against the hinges and I can still get access to the cabinet’s contents.

We get a very similar look with Macraparpa and elm. Very cool!

Well done. Nice looking cabinets making use of otherwise wasted space. I have the same wasted space and was starting to look for ideas… thanks for posting.

Another great and new use of those tiny magnets! Well done, Jason. You’ve given me some new ideas. Thanx.

That was a great idea. Your cabinets look nice, and I’ll bet they hold quite a stash. Very well done!
