Medicine Cabinet Shelves

Just a quick post because I haven't posted in a while...

The cheap plastic shelves that were in my medicine chest were cracking and sagging. I made new ones from scraps of birdseye maple and aluminum bar stock. Finished with spray poly. Took no time at all and looks great.

I would have preferred to replace the whole cabinet, but this is a rental. So rusty old cabinet it is!
