This was a weird but pretty neat project for me. My client had a corner cabinet made 15 years ago and kept it in storage until they had a place to put it. Weird having something made without a home for it but they had a bathroom added in their house and wanted to use the cabinet there. What they wanted was a matching vanity to go with it. The construction company who headed the project had one of his guys make the vanity cabinet but for some reason didn’t make doors for it so I was asked to take on the project.

It’s hard to see the pictures, I was able to come close but I didn’t have the exact router bits that matched the exact profile on the bead. Anyway, the client was very happy and the contractor was grateful that I bailed him out.

The two doors sitting side-by-side are the ones I made and the door on the top is original. You can also see a completely different door that was made for a built-in book case. he book case had 8 doors total.

Thanks for looking!

I forgot to add that the doors weren’t that impressive, I really wanted to share the story behind the doors.

I think you get 10 out of ten for making the effort to make the doors for your customer. I have found that when specialist work around the house needs doing then the contractors are only interested in the large projects where they can make a big profit, they seem to scoff at the smaller jobs. So for that you have to be congratulated, 1. – for satisfying your customer and 2 -= letting the contractor off the hook for his initial failing.
