Arts And Crafts/Mission Style Medicine Cabinet And Plans To Build One


This is a project I posted in 2021 or 2022 on another sight.
I posted the plans if anyone wants to build one. 

Your measurements may very depending on the opening in your wall where your old medicine cabinet used to be. My opening is just under 14 1/2". I made it a 1/4" smaller to account for studs out of square.

It's made from Quartersawn White Oak, 1/4 Oak Plywood, G & G Ebony screw plug covers and a 1/4” beveled mirror.

The hardware is solid brass dark antique from The face frame is attach to the box with biscuits and glue.
The reflection in the mirror is a painting of mine. I placed it on an easel in front of the mirror. It looks better than my shop wall.

Thanks for stopping by.

Yes it is nice work, remember it also.   Like the picture too.


I like how you cut off four squares and paint them in black just like the iPad stand! Looks similar to the ebony on the bottom especially on the picture but I think it would be interesting to see in person.

If you zoom in you may be able to see more details if not let me know what you can’t see and I’ll assist you with a new prescription.

Or maybe you can sharpen up the drawing with you dazzling computer skills on Chicken Scratch Up.
