Built-In Custom Wood Medicine Cabinet

This solid wood medicine cabinet was designed while the property was under construction. Having a small bathroom with no windows, we wanted to really maximize on space and create the illusion of a window. The framed recess measured 27 inches by 18 inches and accommodated space for three shelves, suitable for housing small and tall items.

The medicine cabinet is constructed of Yew, which when sanded to a fine finish has a beautiful rich reddish tone. As Yew wood has a twisted growth pattern it is often only suitable for smaller furniture and finishing projects as it can be difficult to find long, straight lengths.

Once the finished wood cabinet was in place, we opted to trim out the medicine cabinet using wood window framer moldings which finished the look .
