This is the reason I haven’t got much done in my shop recently I have been building this dressing room from scratch for this millionaire. I work alone so it took a while. I had to knock 2 rooms into one & plaster up then built these custom units. the floating table for his iPod is finished in macassur & beech. The drawers in the units don’t have handles he wanted a clean look so I built in “Hafelle” electric openers just push the drawer front & it opens. He likes it it’s his favourite room now. Mmmm. wonder if it’s because of his shoe collection (32 pairs in total)

That guy’s got more cubic meters of dressing room than I have shoes! Well, I guess if you have the cash flow, you can do what you want.

Nice work, in any event.

Wow. At first I thought those were all your shoes. That is a nice walk in closet. One thing you need to sell him yet is a bench to sit down on to put his shoes on and a shoehorn with a beautifully turned handle!! For the guy who has everything!! Just think of the decision each day of which suit to wear and which pair of shoes to grab??????

That is indeed beautiful work. I really like the good use of space to maximize and the practical, almost minimal design so your client can make his selection while viewing the entire wardrobe. Very well done. Thanks for sharing.

I have 3 pairs of shoes. Redwing boots and two other pair. I don’t know what the other two pair are. I wear my Redwing boots everyday. I’m glad there are a few millionairs spread around. They help all of us woodworkers stay in business. He’ll get tired of that and ask you to come back next year to remodel it. :-)

Nice work, I first looked at this going man, finally someone with as many clothes as me. Then went oops, it for someone else. Embarrassingly, I have that many clothes and shoes, but missed the millionaire part! LOL Thx for sharing, looks great! That Bose Ipod dock is great I have one and love it!
