This cabinet is based on the design from Matthew Teague’s Fine Woodworking article, Wall Cabinet in Cherry. I adjusted the dimensions to fit my needs as a medicine cabinet for my master bathroom. It’s about 18” high x 12” wide by 4” deep.
The cabinet was built using scrap walnut. I chose the best grain for the most prominent parts. The door panel was re-sawed and bookmatched from the most interesting board I had. The top and bottom were glued-up panels since I didn’t have any pieces that were wide enough as-is. I used 1/4” red oak plywood veneered with peel-and-stick walnut veneer for the back panel. I also turned the knob which was probably the most fun part for me.
The finish is simply three coats of Minwax Tung Oil Finish followed by a coat of wax applied with #0000 steel wool.
