When renovating the upstairs bathroom, I came up with the idea for a custom-built medicine cabinet.
I wanted the rough cut, aged-wood look that you would find from an old barn, and had the materials available from a fence that we will eventually be replacing.
I removed a few of the planks and ran them through my table saw to width. The dimensions of the cabinet are 40" x 32". The box is 1/2" plywood, with 2" 16ga finish nails.
This provides for 3 shelves at 9", with a 1.5" overhang to catch items that may fall when the doors are opened.
The Doors themselves are framing 1 mirror at 15" x 30" each.
The inside of the frame was ripped to accommodate the thickness of the mirror and a retaining clip.
