My version of Steve Ramsay’s Bathroom Cabinet – in this case it is used a as a cabinet above an outside sink I use to clean up before coming in for the day. Made entirely of pallet wood of course (excluding hardware).

Nice. A handsome and handy cabinet.

@ZAGREB, yes there are rules to a lot of things but here’s one I bet you haven’t heard of, this rule states “if a plan for a project is designed in North America there is a 99% chance that it contains at least one item in it that is unobtainable in Australia”. Another rule states “so you buy that item online for $5 + $35 shipping and wait several weeks for it to arrive”. Another rule states that “you like the look of that item (because, after all, it is supposed to look rustic) and whilst you wait for it to arrive you temporarily replicate the look of it as best you can”.

I mean, who’d have thought a simple 2” t-hinge would be hard to get? I have cut larger ones down before but in this case there just isn’t enough material. In any case I am sick of having to bodge things up (although this is probably not the project to start thinking that way), and so have decided to import some t-hinges – I have used them before and no doubt will again.

Don’t worry I have hung many a door, box lid etc. I know how it’s done – there is at least a quantum of method in my madness ;-)

Oh and there is the other rule that states “If an item by some miracle IS obtainable in Australia it is at least 4-5 times the price of that in NA” – but I digress. Thanks for the chance to have a rant.

Nice build. I’m currently in the process of building my own version of this cabinet, and will post it when I’m done.
