Built two closet organizers, one for each of my son’s closets. The material used is a melamine product purchased at Menards, the finish is Hard Rock Maple. Each organizer required 3 sheets. A matching PVC edge band is available, but it had to be attached with contact cement.

The drawers are made from the same material and have a 1/4” luan bottom. The drawer pulls are the simple bent steel, painted black variety. The slides are Accuride 16” 3/4 extension.

Assembly of the entire project was accomplished using nothing other than pocket screws since glue could not be used.

Each could have been completed in a weekend, if I could work on it uninterrupted (but that’s not possible usually), I’m sure that I spent most of the project gluing and trimming the edge band.

Thanks guys. The only thing I might do differently is the use wood trim instead of the PVC edging.

Martyroc, I have to pass my list is plenty long! Regardless of the quantity of beer offered!
