I promised my mother in law I would build her a bathroom shelf many many moons ago so I wanted to make up for the tardiness with some nice design elements.

For the first time I curved the doors of the cabinet and I used the CNC machine I build (see post here: in order to cut all the curves of the top, middle and bottom shelf to match exactly the curve of the bottom and top stills of the doors. I then thinned down the center panels of the doors to 1/4” so that they could flex and follow the contour of the stills. I then cut the stills and separated the two half of the door panel.

The rest of the joinery is dominos because I am becoming lazy I guess.

The wood used is cherry and zebrawood. The zebrawood panels were bookmatched. The handles were cut on the bandsaw and sanded on the oscillating spindle sander for a softer grip. The back panel is some maple plywood leftover form another project. I turned the pins for the shelf from brass stock because the self centering jig/bit I used made holes too big for the pins I had in hand.

The finish is de-waxed shellac to prevent the cherry from blotching followed by 4 coats of water based epoxy.

Thanks for watching

Wow. Nice work on the curved front. Great choice on the wood combination too.
