Oak Medicine Cabinet

I started with an old metal medicine cabinet that had a plastic cover at the top for the light with a single receptacle and two sliding mirrors with plastic handles.

I made this cabinet out of oak beams with the intent to use the sliding mirrors and add a few more shelves for added space. It would have looked better if I used a 1/4” oak for back, instead of 1/4 inch luan. Live and learn.
I cut the grooves for the mirrors to slide in with the table saw and bought the wood knobs.

Finished with satin lacquer.

Thanks guys! It was a quick build and looks a lot better than the old metal cabinet.

Nice one! I’m looking to build something similar when we remodel our master bath.
