Wood: Walnut (primary) interior is oak plywood (3/4”; backs are ¼”)


I made these for a good friend using lumber that belonged to his father. They are sized to hold a set of golf clubs and were inspired by the lockers at Royal Troon Golf Club in Scotland.

While this is not my first project, it is by far the largest and most complex I have undertaken. I worked from photographs, extrapolating dimensions to retain proportion for the measurements needed. The profile in the rails and stiles are partially hand-carved as are the crown, base and shelves in the middle section.

There are six individual sections held together with panel connectors. All six have shelf pin holes in them but only the narrower middle section comes with shelves. The larger four sections have a closet rod in them enabling use as an armoire as well.

Finish: combination of dye, dewaxed shellac, stain, and varnish. Borrowed from a Mario Rodriguez article in FWW archives. Lemon yellow dye, followed by dewaxed shellac, then red chestnut Varathane, and finally 3 coats of Bartley’s gel varnish. Used Minwax plantation walnut rubbing oil stain and finish on the interior to darken the oak.

Dimensions (Approx): Height 8’9”, Depth 20”, width 45”
