A customer asked me to install cabinet doors to cover a cubby hole in her bathroom. The existing cover was a couple rectangular pieces of unfinished luaun that would slide back and forth. The opening is nowhere near any standard size, so I decided to build the doors to my own measurements. I bought a couple of bits from Rockler, watched one or two videos on YouTube, and went to work. It turned out surprisingly well. Primed and painted, a couple of glass knobs and magnetic catches. Customer was happy. I got some enjoyment learning about panel construction, and applying that knowledge to a project.
