Our powder room had no medicine cabinet, and we needed something to keep things out of the reach of the kids, so I made this simple medicine cabinet. It’s red oak with birds eye maple door panels. there are through tenons on the top and bottom. Two doors with mortise and tenon joints, the panel sits inside a groove in the door. There is a face frame to support the doors and cover the shelf dados. Two shelves inside in simple dados. 1/4” ply back.
This was another good learning project; figured out how quickly a random orbit sander can eat up through tenons. You can still see the damage if you look, but most don’t.
It’s 16”wide, 23.5” tall and 4” deep. Stained with water based poly finish.
