I have made this cupboard for my children.
The cupboard is made out of birch plywood and finished with water based polyurethane.
The dark panels are bronze Polycarbonate Structured Sheets – and for safety reasons the mirrors are not glass but Perspex.

I was wondering about the glass in the childrens room, and then I went to the polygal site you listed. I think
they would even stand up to my great grandkids. Beautiful cabinets, the mirrors and polygal really help set the
birch off, and the polyurethane should protect it from the kids. But, not to be a nag, we are curious and just
can not get enough views of shelf, drawers and joinery, would you please show us the inside? Thank you
for sharing.

Great looking project. Like the others mentioned, more pics would be great. Love to see the drawers and jointery. With that said great looking cupboard.

This is so incredibly European looking (terrific) that I had to see where you are from. Israel :) Lucky kids to have such a terrific bedroom set up. Who gets to keep the fingerprints cleaned off? LOL

I’ve been working on something similar for—well, it seems like for-e-v-e-r! I love the mix of materials you used. It really looks great.

Mine is three parts also, with the middle part having shorter doors and more drawers. All my drawers are complete and I completed and hung the middle set of doors today but have to work on squaring up the cabinet better so the doors hang correctly. I can only stain and varnish two doors at a time for lack of space.

I hope you won’t think I stole your design when I finally get mine finished and posted! Thanks for posting your project!

Thank you all for your interest, feedback and comments.
I’ll try to capture some more detailed pictures, but to be honest, at least in my opinion, there is nothing interesting in the interior parts as they are all – joinery, hinges and sliders – regular European style.

lightweightladylefty, I’m not going to think you “stole” my design. Even if one will do so, I have posted the project here in a public space for that sake, to enable those who want to get inspiration from it.

Hey! Your kids might end up building furniture too? Saw the bed, and bookcase. Great to have them involved.
