no previous part Part 1 of pull out closet series Part 2: #2 »

A little more progress made on the closet. All the joinery was cut, a few dados and rabbits along with two bevels to the panels and some biscuits. A full interior sanding and dry fit followed by the glue-up. The glue up took place in three phases. The top two parts were glued up first then once that was dry the bottom and sides were done with the top assembly dry fit in place to the sides, and then the top assembly was glued to the sides. I added some structural members to the top section since that is were all the load will be. I also added some material to what will be the far inside of the closet. As this is going into an attic space I wanted to be able to still get in the attic so the back will be removable. There are a few screws and brads in the mix as well. Next is going to be a little sanding to the exterior and then a coat of primer to the exterior. After that, the attic space will be insulated better (just because it needs it anyway) and then it will be installed. This is an ongoing remodel for one of my girls so once it is installed I will not be making the door for a little while – got to get back to the other girls room and finish the built in dresser, make the desk, bed and window seat x 2 since there are two rooms and two girls (another blog, or just rename this one???).

Here are the photos:
