OK I finished the kitchen remodel for the guys up coast a ways and now I'm getting things going for the bath remodel. I've got the vanity all cut out (photos will be in another post) but I need to build a matching medicine cabinet that will fit between the studs (16" centers). I plan on using 1/2" birch ply at this point and a rail and stile door with bead board field to match the vanity. Question, when making one of these, do you make them deeper than the cavity into the wall allows or keep them flush to the sheet rock? Or is it just to personal choice? With a max of 14 1/2", how tall can I go with out making it look out of proportion?
Thanks in advance for your help
PS. I plan on cutting some glass for shelves. What is a good way to soften the edge to keep fingers from getting cut. I think I knew once but forgotten
