Bow front medicine cabinet with towel bar. Featuring bent lamination doors with knife hinges, Q-sawn white oak, lacewood veneer and walnut accents. My wife asked me to build a medicine cabinet for the bathroom and wanted a towel bar below it. She would have settled for a square box and a store bought towel bar. At the time I was wanting to experiment with veneer and bent lamination’s. The cabinet hangs using 4 key hole slots routed in hardwood cleats.

Thanks for the comments. I didn’t take any pics of the build process. The bent lamination doors are made with several layers of bending plywood. I didn’t have a vacuum press so I made opposing bending forums and lots of clamps to create the glueup.
