Built-in Wardrobe

This wardrobe was made to utilize the space behind the knee wall in the master bedroom of our bungalow. It adds a lot of clothing storage without taking up floor space in the room (which is small). Working with the roof of the house sloping down behind the piece presented some design challenges, but all was overcome. There’s a space for a TV in the middle with a slide out shelf below for electronics with power, cable, and internet hookups all available. It’s made with maple hardwood and plywood and finished with General Finishes Arm-R-Seal.

this looks fantastic. I’m up against something similar, did you use plywood for the drawer boxes and door panels or solid wood glue ups?

Thanks all!

missesalot, the panels on the doors and drawer faces are plywood, but the drawers themselves are solid hardwood.

Too nice – good thing the tax assessor isn’t allowed in the house – you taxes would definitely go up

Really well done. Love the built-ins, they use otherwise wasted space, like under the stairs drawers. Nice build, nice finish. Clean and tidy.

I love it! I could look at built-ins all day long. Yours is particularly nice. Love your wood work too.
