Bust out one wall, load bearing so added beams, reboard, insulate

lots of room for shoes, pullout shoe racks, shoe shelves, laundry hampers, jewellery drawer, etc., The angled pigeon hole wall is for shoes too, a portion is on wheels and can be removed for a “secret” corridor. Closet even had solid bronze closet rods.

These look really nice. Looks like very efficient use of space. Did you ever feel claustrophobic in there?

Stellar work as usual Mo.
What did you line the jewelry drawers with?
That’s a load of cockbeading.
Did you get the machine?

thank you for all the kind comments

Bob. I bought the flocking kit from LV,.....worked out really well. Yup, I’ve been doing haunched/beaded joinery by HAND for years so I bought 2 tools and a wack of tooling…....ouch !!! but the tool will do in an hour, what used to take a day.

Thanks every one

Mike, it was made from solid white pine for frames doors and drawer fronts (would not have been my first choice), drawers made from maple, cabinet interiors are Idaho pine veneers
