I promised my wife that I would build her a closet organizer. She/we want to make it out of a nice hardwood, with no plywood or MDF. We like the “Vented Design” such as:Cedar Closet Systems
. We ordered one of these for the bathroom, very nice, attractive, but the Cedar aroma was a bit overpowering. She also wanted a different kind of hardwood and I want to build them. I ordered 30 board feet of Macacauba, so its time to get serious about this project.
We have a walk in closet that is 8 ft x 5 ft with a 4 t wide door opening. I only need to build on the back 8ft wall and one of the 5ft walls (see attached .gif)
I need to find a plan for this type of closet organizer. I built a workbench for my garage without a plan, and quickly learned that for a beginning DIY/Woodworker like myself, that was a big mistake. So much time and wood was wasted, I will not “wing it” again for a long time.
Yes, there are many closet organizer plans out there, I have purchased a few to see if I could adapt, but I can’t really find a plan that is close to the Northern Kentucky shelves (BTW – They are great people to work with if you want ready built shelves). I suspect there will be a fair amount of routing in this project.
Attached are some photos of similar shelves from other companies.
