Here are some photos of the built-ins I installed in our master closet. I used pre-finished maple plywood to save time and the face frames are made of stained poplar. The sides mirror each other to give the closet a his and her side layout.

The dressers have Blum underside soft close guides and a lip is routed along the bottom edge of the drawers to act as the drawer pull.

What’s the trick to those Blum slides? I had some, but never was able to get them to mount and install correctly. I ended up going with side mount slides that I don’t care for as much.

Very nicely done. This is a project that has been on my short list for about a year now. You’ve given me some ideas and some inspiration. Now if I could only get a few other projects wrapped up…

That’s super nice! Great layout, and I love how you utilized all the usually otherwise dead space in the corners. Real nice build

Very nice! Did you preassemble the face frame in sections, or cut to fit and nail/glue in place?

I assembled the plywood boxes in units/sections and then installed them in the closet.

The face frames were cut to fit (scribed where needed) and installed once all the units were in place to account for any minor variations.

Have your say...
