This was a fun project.
Origionaly it was and open alcove with a TV and a few shelves. Plywood and white enamel, realy classy. This is an old barn turned house so we were going through and removing all the anachronistic trim, flooring, etc. This is the master suite and i was tasked with removing the old closet doors and removing the alcove and replacing all of it. The built in is plywood carcass with pine face frame, doors, and drawer fronts. Trim package was beaded (by me) 1×4 with an applied ogee and cap trims. Only real challenge was my boss thought i could build the carcass in one piece and get it upstairs, ha! So I did what he wanted and ended up having to cut the darn thing in half and making two separate carcass. BUt with the beauty of face frame construction all was well hidden. I used a new method for the trim where i preassembled the 1×4 using a kreg pocket screw jig. I scoffed at it at first but i’ll tell you what that $100 jig turned out to be a jem. Those joints will not separate with screws and glue and the beauty is that you can glue it screw it and apply it, no waiting.
