This newly designed bathroom cabinet can be adapted for many uses. Featuring a mortise and tenoned door to frame a fitted mirror panel, the cabinet also has two adjustable and removable shelves. The door hinges fit into a rebated opening in the main carcass which has a variation on the stopped housing dado and some subtle roundovers. The cabinet features a hand turned cabinet door knob using the lathe and is finished out using a water-based finishing technique.
