The client wanted a open architecture for their closet organizer but still wanted to close it in if they changed their mind later on. So I put a dado on the inside of the frame to allow them to insert either horizontal or vertical slats. The slats were made and delivered with the unit. I cut off the corner of each slats opposite end to eliminate the pesky hypotenuse problem. The bar in the middle can be moved up and down since the two boards can be removed and placed anywhere in the unit. The bottom shelf can be removed to gain access to the stainless steel floor levelers and one shelf was provided for the client. They have ordered three more shelves in case they want to eliminate the middle bar and use shelving. The unit was made from poplar and curly cherry.

That’s a nice design. I have been working on some plans for something similar for my daughter’s closet. I am hoping to start working on it soon.
Thanks for sharing.

That’s one clever design…..and you’ve done a fine job on it too…..
Was there thought for a shoe rack in the lower middle section??
One came last week in the “wood workers journal” magazine email.

No Crowie, I didn’t envision a shoe rack for the closet organizer, but I have been trying to design a big shoe rack that considers different types of shoes, snow dripping off them, ease of use and total cubic footprint. I will send you a photo of one I built for this past Christmas that failed on the “ease of use” parameter.
