When we bought our retirement home, the master bedroom closet was a mixture of Ikea style cabinets and wire shelving that resembled what you would put together after a really fun night and blinding hangover. Needless to say after we settled into retirement mode, my lovely bride suggested that we needed some relief from the attack of the killer closet. I found a good supply of aromatic cedar and figured what the hey, if cedar can keep the bugs at bay, why not a couple solid cedar chest of drawers. I must admit I started going nuts trying to figure out how I was going to glue up a bunch of 4-6 inch boards to get the full 24 inch panel for the sides. It figures that I would get a brain cramp in the middle of the night and tinkered with a standard raised panel design and added a center stile to achieve the necessary width for sides. I can tell you one thing, retirement rocks!!
