I was asked to build a floor model medicine cabinet that had space for towels in the bottom. This is the design that I came up with. The cabinet is made out of walnut and I did use the sapwood, I really think it adds to this piece. The shelves and back are laminate. Any and all commits are welcome. If you have any questions fire away and I will do my best to answer them. Thanks for looking.

That is pretty neat. Formica back? Neat idea.

Very nice work, I too agree with the use of walnut sapwood. It is very much a part of the wood and adds to it’s appearance. I really like this piece.

yes the back and shelves are formica, this came about out of neccessity. I hate to admit it on here but I ran short on the walnut and new I would not have enough for all the shelves and back, so I was walking around in a big box store and found this piece of formica and thought HMMM that will go well with the walnut. So that is why I used the formica. Oh and the customer new and was happy with the outcome.

Very nice. The sapwood adds appeal and interest for me.You dont see much sapwood veneer so this lets people know this is the real thing. Good work.
