Oak Medicine Cabinet

I started with an old metal medicine cabinet that had a plastic cover at the top for the light with a single receptacle and two sliding mirrors with plastic handles.

I made this cabinet out of oak beams with the intent to use the sliding mirrors and add a few more shelves for added space. It would have looked better if I used a 1/4” oak for back, instead of 1/4 inch luan. Live and learn.
I cut the grooves for the mirrors to slide in with the table saw and bought the wood knobs.

Finished with satin lacquer.

Nice one! I’m looking to build something similar when we remodel our master bath.
