More of a design challange than great woodworking skills, but thought this might be of help in dealing with a “Non Standard Closet”

When I noticed a article in “Workbench” for closet organizers, I thought COOL, just do a funiture makers RDS, (Rip, Dip, and Ship) job and straighten out my office closet.

My home ofice is the smallest room in the house and the closet sticks out over the stairway. This gives it a foot more of depth than normally found in a closet.

As soon as I laid this out, I found I could gain some space, but would still waste the 1 foot. Added units to the corners, but then would be unable to reach anything hanging-DARN!

Once again a simple project grows.

SOLUTION was to redesign and make units shallower, side towers smallet, and use 45 degree angles to open up the area.

I hope this may be of help!!
