We had a small remodel done to our second bathroom and needed a wall cabinet. The cabinet under the sink is maple, so I used maple to match. We discussed a few design options and settled on this. It’s put together with dado and rabbet joints, held together with only glue. The top is 3/4″ thick and all other parts are 17/32″. It’s finished with three coats of polyurethane, lightly sanding between coats, and then a coat of paste wax.
Firsts in this project: making a molding profile on the edges of the top.
I blogged about this build, if anybody is interested to read more. The blog site is in my signature line – look for the entries entitled “A Bathroom Cabinet”, parts 1, 2 and 3.

Very well done! The starfish add a nice whimsical feel, and your molding turned out well.

Thanks Rick. My wife had the idea for the starfish – she’s much better at decorative things than I am.

Looks good Matt. I love the simple look. You did a great job and maple is not always easy to work with.
