Get out the Kreg Jig and drill a few holes. Mark the holes where the screw will go, and drill some pilot holes, then drive in the screws after applying some glue.

And there we have some additional storage. Although it looks like a 10 minute job, it wasn't. Lol.

Now you all you need is a place where to store an extra roll of TP and a magazine rack instead of the Sears catalogue.

The back side of the frame waiting for the plywood insert to be glued in place.

Then after applying glue, it's time to apply weight. Paint and tools make wonderful weights for smaller jobs.

Alrighty. Now that the glue has dried for the door over the toilet, I clamped it in place to check the fit, and am happy with how it is looking so far.

Next, I cut, trimmed and sanded a 1/8" thick piece of plywood, that will be glued over the framing. Here again, was another test fit.

I will say, having curves on the ceiling, or anywhere else, does indeed complicate things just a little bit, when it comes time to make them fit.

One of the last steps to do before gluing the plywood front on, was to add a piece of wood the the front of the shelf. That will give a ledge to keep things from sliding out willy nilly when opening the door.

I will probably add a bungie cord, or something similar part way up the opening, to also keep items in place.

That glue will be dry tomorrow, and I can glue the plywood front on.

I'll have to pick up a pair of hinges for the door yet.
