Roughly 10×12 master bedroom closet – with a few hanging rods from builder. Built out all five walls up to the 10 foot ceiling with shoe shelves, 3 levels of rods (pull down top layer not in pics), and drawers for wife’s sweaters. Plywood and poplar construction. Made mistake of building first 10-foot shelf in shop then had to carry and finagle it through the house – built kits in shop after that and assembled in closet; much smarter…

Really nice work. A little trim goes a long way!

Questions:
For the little dresser – did you buy one and build it in? How deep is it? Looks maybe 14-16”.
What’s on the front of each shelf? Looks like bull nose.
Is it plywood with pine trim? 3/4”?

I always struggle with the dimensions in a closet.

MoshupTrail – Yes, I bought the dresser – 16-inches deep and 50-inches high; shameful for a woodworker to do but I had more important things to do than build a simple set of drawers…The front of the shelves is 1-inch pine with a bullnose front and yes, the shelves and verticals are all 3/4 ply – maybe overbuilt but I’m not worried about how many clothes are on the rods or shoes on the shelves… :-)

Not shameful at all. Very sensible. All those drawers are a pain to make.
A project like this is closer to “cabinetry” than woodworking.
And painter’s calk is your best friend!
