Shaker style cabinet

There used to be a sink at that spot where this cabinet now stands. The sink was removed but the pipes, threaded rod and other fasteners that hold the sink to the wall are still there. My operations department, requested that occupational therapy help them make a cupboard. As the occupational therapist, aka me, is nice and obliging, I obliged.

I decided to make the cabinet in the Shaker style. (You all know G&G is my preferred style) Something simple that I can finish in a week (since I am leaving the company), yet nice enough for others to remember me by.

All the joints are dado joints. The frame of the door is mortise and tenon joint. The panel is booked matched and stained for contrast. If I were to improve the cabinet in future,  perhaps I’ll add in a turned door knob.
