Default Bathroom Wall Cabinet

I built a simple cabinet to hang on the wall above the toilet. I used a 10 foot piece of 1x8 white pine purchased at the big box store.

I worked out the dimensions so all I had left was sawdust!

Joinery was simple butt joints using glue and 18 ga brad nails. I cut a 5/16 x 1/4 recess so the bead board back could be installed and not seen.

One of the purposes for this cabinet is to store several rolls of toilet paper.

I will post a finished picture of the cabinet installed after I get it back from the Finishing Dept.

Very nice, Mike. Good use of material, and the beading adds a lot to it. Ill have to remember that trick.

Nice job Mike. That looks kind of like a Shaker design.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I love practical, useful projects like this. As an old guy for whom plumbing has become an important part of life, I'd love to have a cabinet to keep my Rx'd items in a closed cabinet above the commode. This is a nice start, just put in a face frame and doors. I have a wonderful watercolor of an elegant European arboretum that I might put on the inside of a glass door. Definitely the wrong location for a mirror.

Might be even nicer to set into the wall as long as there's no plumbing in the way. That would have the cabinet stand maybe 3-4 inches off the drywall. Just thinking.

I really like that Mike. It's simple and will hold a lot of toliet paper. What will you do about finiahing?

PS- I could use something like that as I am having a colonospy in two weeks.

Tom - The wall is an outside wall with insulation and a water supply line which also is tied into the outside faucet so no inset possibility.

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

Insulation? Did you say insulation? Where's Rainman?

Thanks. I don't know why I called it a vanity. It's just a simple cabinet with shelves. But it will come in handy.
