Shop update #229 (3-16-22) Bathroom Shelves edition
My wife asked me to buy and mount one of those MDF bathroom hutch/medicine cabinet things in the toilet closet of our master bathroom so I made some custom fit shelves instead.
I started by picking up cutting some 1/2″ maple plywood and cut it into 7.25″ strips. I also bought some of the good pine boards to mount to the front of the shelves.
I then cut everything down to the proper width for the room.
All the pieces got a good sanding, a coat of stain, and then 2 coats of Spar Urethane.
I attached the front face using glue and brads.
I screwed some furring strips into the back wall and then on the 2 side walls next to it. I then placed the shelves on these strips and drove 1 screw into the back furring strip. I did this for both shelves.
