Getting ready for the Home Show. Not totally happy with the design. But mainly want it to show people and talk ideas. 74” tall, 30” wide and 20” deep. Made of Beetle Kill Pine. It does have oak dowels. I could have made them from BKP, but I have a lot of oak dowels.

Thanks for reading and all comments and suggestions are welcome.

Have you thought about doors in the upper open space and drawers in the lower?

Looks good! Maybe add a rod across for hangers???

have only done one of these ( Cherry) and the client wanted to drawers hidden by closing the doors. I gave her a pair of half drawers on the bottom. When she opened the doors (Full height) there was the drawers.

Looks good Monte, I noticed no doors on this one, I personally feel it would be better with them then left open. Perhaps 3 drawers below as well…..

Nice job on this one Monte… I’d love to have something like this to hang coats and hats on.

looks good but I would add more drawers to the bottom and doors on top with a closet pole or with adjustable shelves,lots of combinations on something like this,but yeah a great start to see what people want should be a big seller if you offer to customize,good luck.

This would be a great place for coats, hats, gloves, etc just inside the front door. And it’s pretty!
