The New Medicine Cabinet - Not Installed Because...

...it is broken. The door is pushed in, in fact so far in and twisted just enough, to have me slightly amazed that the mirror did not break. I contacted Home Depot via email, about an hour ago and they have already replied (wow that was very fast) saying I can return it at a store or via UPS. Going to the store will likely be easier so, this evening, after dinner, I am off to Homer's to return this one, get a refund and look for a suitable replacement in store. They have a very small selection of junk in the store, but even at a higher price than most in the store this one was obviously junk too. I wish I knew where to get a well made one for a couple of hundred, to maybe $300. I have seen many made of real wood but starting for around $750 but sure am not going to pay that for a small medicine cabinet. I would be better off making one myself and if I knew how to make a mirrored door I certainly would give it a try. Oh well, off to Homer's soon to see what I can get so it is installed before Thanksgiving. Otherwise, I will be in the doghouse for sure.

All the best,
Glenn B

Have you considered a local high school shop class? They have projects that upperclassman create. Maybe you could get one done per your photo requirements for cost of wood and little else.
