Installing A Custom Cabinet Door In A Bathroom Niche

Last week we made the a custom cabinet door and face frame surround for this bathroom closet niche.  Today was installation day.

Raised panel doors; Shorter lower door and taller upper door.

Using a shaper in our workshop we made custom cabinet door and face frames to fit into the open space in this bathroom.  The doors are made of poplar, cope and stick construction with raised panels. Installed with a 3/8″ overlay.

Upper section of face frame. Ceiling are 9′-0″.  Small bed molding finishes off the top section that meets the ceiling.

Middle section of face frame is scribed around tile.

The customer wanted to keep the vinyl shelving but have it hidden inside the niche.

Once painted these doors will look like they were always there.
