I build this closet at the beginning of the year after demoing the 2 closets in the master bathroom to expand the bathroom from a 1/2 bathroom to a 10’ x 11’ bathroom, which is going to be my next home remodel when we get the budget to do it right. The closet has a clear coat of shellac on the inside and pollyacrylic on the inside. On the doors are made of poplar and 1/4 plywood that I stained 2 different stains, Kona and dark walnut. The Dresser top is 8/4 Ambrosia Maple that I had the lumber yard dimension for me since I don’t own a joiner or planer as on yet. All I had to do is glue and sand down. The closet and dresser is finished with pollyacrylic and the top is finished with arm n seal “gloss. This was my first project that was this big, but build closet organizers for all my kids and mini dressers in side them that prepared me for this larger build. Thanks for looking….

This needs to be placed in the “Projects” section, not forum area.
I just use the windows image viewer, rotate picture to appropriate view, and then save it. Whalla.
Very nicely done. poplar and 1/4 plywood with 2 different stains… looks excellent!

Eugd,

Very well done! With all that new found and very attractive closet space maybe you should shop for a planer or jointer and drop some hints on which would be just right for you. After this closet work your wife is probably ready to buy you a tool for Christmas. Again, well done!

JBROW, I wish you were in her ear, she’s more like hay you built a closet with what you have, why do you need more tools, but I ordered a bandsaw that just came this week, which is a new toy that I can’t wait to set up and play with. Thanks for the feedback

you click on ‘new project’...to a window that you click on “Yes, I want to post my finished project that is made of wood”.
add title and then upload upto 6 pictures (the first pic uploaded will be the initial public thumbnail).
What did this closet look like prior to your project? Might have to follow suit.

Thanks, will do next time, thanks for the info Hobbs, it was a blank empty wall, the original bedroom closets were in the master bathroom which made no sense it took away from the size of the master bathroom, on one of pictures I uploaded on top was the base I had to level, from one side of room to the other it was off by 1.75 inches due to house setting. Nothing is stays square in a older houses.

Good job!

That’s a lot of effort, but it came out nice.
