My dad reintroduced my kids and I to a toy he had had when he was a boy. It has a few names: sawmill, buzzer, and whirligig to name a few. It is usually made with a big button and a string. The string is looped through the button and you can make the button spin at the center of the wound up string. I thought this would make a good woodturning project.

Our medicine cabinet was in desperate need of replacement. It had been hacked together by a previous owner and it did not fill its full potential. Our house is in the mid-century modern style and has no trim on the interior. Each door and window is just an opening in the wall. This is the design language I wanted to use for our new medicine cabinet. I removed the old medicine cabinet and cleaned up the hole in the wall with corner bead and plaster. This gave me a clean opening in the wall. I wanted the new doors to the medicine cabinet to be flush with the wall and be framed in the newly made opening. Each door frames a mirror I cut from salvaged mirror. Behind the doors are two birch plywood boxes making up the body of the medicine cabinet. I added adjustable shelves.
