It won't be for the bathroom, actually, but for my daughter's room. I envision a shallow cabinet (for makeup and sundry paraphernalia) with a hinged mirrored door; like a panel door, but with a mirror where the panel would go. It would probably measure 18" x 24" x 4".
I'd like to think of a design that could be built simply, as I'd like my (17 y.o.) daughter to be able to do much of the building. That is in fact the main goal of the project. She seems up for it.
As this will be a case of the "partially-sighted leading the blind", I'm open to suggestions, but a couple of initial questions come to mind:
Will I need some sort of "backer" for the mirror, or could a sufficiently thick piece of glass suffice on its own? How should I hold it in? I assume a rabbet from behind the frame, and "points", if that's the right term.
I'm thinking of making the joinery simple by using pocket screws, even perhaps to assemble the door. Is this a stupid idea in any way?
Thanks in advance.
