Bathroom Wall Cabinet

Bathroom Wall Cabinet

Three months into the bathroom remodel and we still didn’t have a convenient storage area until this week! Finally, I made the bathroom wall cabinet. The design and construction is simple and could be easily modified to fit your own needs or style.

When designing this, I wanted it to fit the theme of our bathroom with square edges and industrial elements. But mainly, I wanted it accessible. Wall cabinets often reach all the way to the ceiling, making the top shelf unusable, especially when trying to reach over a toilet!

So this is essentially a deep medicine cabinet. The little open shelves on the side are just for holding decorations. I suppose you could store stuff on them, but it would probably look cluttered.

Wood and steel bath cabinet

I began by cutting four plywood boardsĀ and assembling them into a basic box, using glue and long screws.


I used the two shelves as spacers to align the left, inset side.


I drilled shelf pin holes using a special jig from Kreg.



The face frame is made with solid pine boards. I glued and tacked these into place.



I builtĀ the door frame using pocket screws, then routed out a rabbet on the back side that the panel could rest on.


The metal poles are steel electrical conduit. I cut these to size with a metal cutting blade in my jigsaw.


Next, I set up a stop block on my drill press to bore holes in the exact spot on each of the little shelves.


The pipes just tread through them and rest in a shallow hole on the bottom.


I used two plywood boards as spacers to hold the shelves in place while I drilled holes and geld them in place with long screws.



The door panel is a piece of leftover bead board I used on the back wall of the bathroom. I glued it into the rabbet on the back of the door frame.


After painting everything, I ran the pipes through the shelves.


This french cleat system makes handing the cabinet easy.
