This cabinet was inspired by a taller version I made years ago. The case and frames are made from bubinga, the top, bottom, door panels and shelves are walnut. It measures a little over 24” tall, 8 ” deep and 18”wide.
The smaller parts on the door were a definite challenge, and reminded me that smaller doesn’t always mean faster for a project. I figured that the downstairs bathroom is probably one of the most commonly used rooms in the house. It deserved a hand-made piece. I’ll probably do a floor cabinet as well for this room sometime in the future.
The plans to this will be posted to my Gorilla Glue blog shortly.

This is a nice cabinet, Andy. The wood combination works well for me and I like the look that the bubinga gives to the cabinet. The cabinet has a nice design to it and the exposed joinery adds visual interest.

I am sure that I will be “commissioned” one of these to do as well after completing the vanity design on which I am currently working. Thanks for the inspiration.
