Wanted a cabinet in the bathroom that sat above the tank of the toilet…..Got a stash of Ash wood, made some fancy Raised Panel door…..Frames for the doors are a mitered half lap. 2 small wooden knobs serve as the door handles…magnetic catches inside hold the door shut ( so I won’t bang my head..)

Middle shelf is a 1/2” thick Pine board….Hinges are mortised in place. Shelves fit into dados, and the top is dadoed to the sides…all are just glued joints…back panel is 1/4” plywood. Two large metal angle brackets to secure the case to the wall.

Stain is a blend. 2 coats of clear gloss poly, rubbed down after each coat with 0000 steel wool. Towel rod is a 5/8” dowel.

Thanks for looking in!

Well done Bandit. Looks good on the wall. Should help store some of the hard to find tp.

Beautiful cabinet. How many rolls of toilet paper can you hoard / store??

Another fine project, Bandit! If you do store mass quantities of TP in that cabinet, you might want to install a biometric lock on the cabinet.

Really like that stile and rail profile. If I show this to my wife she’ll want one for sure.

Nice work Bandit. Never enough storage in a bathroom for all the stuff a bathroom requires.

Those doors came out great, Bandito. Cab too. But I notice you have some painting to do! Those walls have some “issues.” Lol.
