We used 2 wood bread boxes turned up/side down in the C, one over the toilet and the other over the head door with laches to keep then closed and door struts to keep them open, wife definitly used them.

On the pantry I used the 90 degree metal that is used for the corners in houses with driled holes so that bungee cords can be attached when travelling and one side off when parked for a longer stay, so far they work great, with 3 bungee cords per shelf, also used them for the overhead bins to keep loose items from launchin when the over head bin door is opened up, got tiered off playing catch.

I dont know if you have ever had a cabinet over the toilet but I have. Years back they sold those over the toilet cabinets on poles. I bought one. I learned quickly that before I opened that cabinet you had to make sure to close the lid on the toilet. Certainly, no fun if you dont.




Thanks for the post, Ro_sie. The mental image I got when reading this, gave me cause to chuckle. Certainly not fun at the time, but still amusing, non the less.


If you want to do something, you will find a way.
If you don't, you will find an excuse.

I have built several over the years. We currently have two in in our house that I built. I build them with a towel rack on the bottom and a recessed shelf.




Thanks. I was thinking about more uses for under the cabinet.

Playing catch is good for the reflexes, though... Lol.

A little extra construction today on the cabinet. I have these screwed and glued into place.

Then it was time to add a bottom. You know, so things don't fall out the bottom.

This is the shot from underneath at the moment. I haven't decided if I am going to add a cover on the bottom or not.

I also added a screw from the side, through the wall to help support the bottom rail. The circle is the screw head, which goes into the rail - shown by the arrow. Overall, it's very sturdy.

Getting ready to cut the curve for the top of the cabinet. It does take a lot of extra time to cut curves, rather than having a square area to work with.

Then transfer it to the wood that is actually going on the top area.
