Part 1: The Sketchup Plan

12-30-2011 06:47 AM by Eric_S | 5 comments »

My wife and I are starting to outgrow our first house which has very little storage and with kids very likely coming very soon, we had to think about future living. We’ve decided we can live in our house for probably another 5 years if we had more storage and a more comfortable living environment, so we are slowly tackling those projects. I’ve spent 4 months over this past summer in my spare time remodeling the guest bathroom but I didn’t post that here because it isn̵...

Part 2: Pieces cut, dadoes and rabbets in the works

01-01-2012 12:12 AM by Eric_S | 5 comments »

I was hoping I’d be finished by now, but as usual, something always gets in the way. Anyways, over the past two days I’ve managed to cut all the pieces and started on the rabbets and dadoes for all the shelves and vertical supports. Here are the 5 14”x93” walls that make up the closet and the edge guide I made to mark a 14” line on all of them. I actually cut them 2 deep to make it quicker and used a home made edge guide for a circular saw. Next up came c...

This weekend I spent some time finishing up the dadoes and rabbets on all the remaining pieces so that it could all be assembled in the garage for paint and to make a face frame..or not. I’ll get to that later. Here are some pics though of the progress. The master bedroom closet is 3 seperate pieces, left wall shelving for my wife featuring a 10” wide dress length hanging rod area and another area for 2 rods at 38” and 78”, corner shelving for both of us, and adjacen...

Part 5: Edge Banding, Painting :( and Installation

01-29-2012 05:57 AM by Eric_S | 9 comments »

I managed to finish the closet today :) Here are some pics of the edge banding process, painting(yawn), and installation. One thing I should have noted when dealing with the installation. I measured the doorways, and height of the rooms and width of the hallways to make sure I could get this massive shelving beast inside. I did that just fine. What I forgot to measure was the diagonal of the shelving from top front to bottom back to allow to rotate it vertically to pivot in our narrow ...
