RE: Recessed Med. Cab-- You build your own?

I really like the first one you posted - I'm saving the pic as an inspiration for the hall bath I'm working on.

Not quite sure my cabinetry skills are up to it - or time, as I'd have to cut a stud and put in headers, and move wires. Well, it's not a bearing wall.

Twelve years ago when I just started DIY, I made one for the powder room - the door is rosette blocks and casing and a cut-down mirror. Screwed the hinges directly to the studs, drilled the studs for shelf supports and painted the stud cavity - it maximized the storage space.

Here is a link that might be useful: powder room medicine cabinet.
