I call this cabinet “Stop yelling at me!”. I’ll bet you can figure out why.
My wife wanted a medicine cabinet for our master ensuite bathroom. This is what I came up with. Made of all solid wenge with shop cut birdseye maple veneer panel in the door. Back panel is plain maple and wenge strips, sitting in a dado. This was the first time using wenge to this extent, and also the first time using knife hinges. The front edge of the door is rounded over and sits 1/4” proud of the cabinet. There are matching 45* bevels on all horizontal pieces.
I had trouble deciding on a fitting pull, but ended up with this stainless steel one that matches the knife hinges. I was gonna make a B.E Maple one, but the wife didn’t want that.
Dimensions are 33” tall, 19” wide, 6” deep. The three interior shelves are on adjustable pins. The finish is gloss polyurethane, should be suitable for a bathroom.
