This closet has been on my to-do-list for awhile.

Our house being build 80 years ago needed some updated plumbing a while ago. The closet has been stud walls since.

Today was the day to make it useable again.

I began by removing all the old nails that would be in my way. I then placed some nailers where needed for the tongue and groove installation. I placed the side walls first then the back wall. The back wall would be easily removable in the event of a leak with only removing the quarter molding and two screws. The tongue and groove back wall has very few nails to keep it up.

Once the tongue and groove was done I added adjustable shelves using my keg jig.

The shelves are make of premium pine and are slightly rhomboid shaped due to the less than square walls.

I’m glad this one is done!
