Our main 4 piece bathroom is about as small as possible (1950’s bungalow) but we wanted to make a statement in renovating it anyway. It is all new except the tub, which was reglazed. The vanity and medicine cabinet are solid walnut. The vanity features 1-1/2” top (because I had the material and like heavy), frame and panel end, fluted legs, and crotch walnut door. I squeezed a drawer under the cupboard because I find a typical vanity cupboard to be a waste of space. The medicine cabinet also features a crotch walnut door panel. I made a walnut t/p holder (cove cut on the table saw) and cut it into the end panel.
The med cabinet hangs on the wall and I worried about lining up the wall anchor screws to the cabinet hangers until I realized that making a paper template of the back of the cabinet with the hangers in place, turning it over (easy to forget this step) and marking the wall for each location should be accurate. To my relief that worked.
For the first time, I used no-mortis hinges and am quite satisfied with the result as well as saving the hassle of cutting the mortises in the right location.
