Carpentry is not my strong suit. I like furniture…but when the lady needs something and you have the shop to do it, you get it done. You can see by the 3rd picture that the storage was all wrong for my wife’s rather impressive collection on vintage dresses.

All in all it took a little under 10 hours to get this done.

Of course, it already looks like I need to build a bigger closet.
