Topic tags/keywords: medicine cabinet

Got a project coming up and wondering what advice or pointers you guys have. I’m doing a 48 inch medicine cabinet with 3 mirrored doors on the front. Just wondering how you guys would make the doors.. I don’t want them too heavy to sag the hinges over time. I wasn’t wanting to make a frame and panel door with the mirror as the panel, I was wanting to just see the mirrors from the front. Any pointers would be great. Thx

Check out the home improvement stores and see how theirs are constructed. While the materials may be cheap the construction of the doors will give you some clues on how to make yours. Just a thought.

+1 on Gregn. That’s what I would do.
