So we need some storage, and I know just the guy to create it.
I actually gonna look around the shop and see what I have here.
And I believe I have enough plywood to create one of these
cool wardrobes that can be a multi-purpose thing.
No it’s gonna work for me, hopefully it work for you guys as well.
But before we get into that, quick word from today’s sponsor
BOMBFELL, an easier way for a man to shop for great-looking clothes.
I like new clothes. But I don’t really like shopping,
especially in stores.
I’m all about convenience, but too many time I go in a store,
and I ended up picking up more than I actually went there for.
Or I find myself going from store to store to try to find the right style.
Now BOMBFELL actually solves all those problems.
First you go to their website. Link in description.
Then you fill out a simple questionnaire,
and that’s enough information for them to pair you up with the right stylist.
After signing up, you put in all your measurements,
then you’re onto your order instruction, like,
what you want and when you want it.
48 hours later,
you then get an email to confirm what was picked for you.
If you don’t like it, just request a change.
And seven days after receiving your item,
you get to keep it or returning.
And it’s really simple, so the more you keep, the more you get to save.
And living in that Florida weather, this just makes a lot of sense.
It’s very comfortable and I really like the feel of the material.
It’s been a smooth process,
on top of that there’s a special offer just for you.

Let’s get started.
I ‘ll begin by cutting the plywood down to a manageable size.
A track saw is a really good option here,
but i like to use what I already have,
a circular saw and a rip cut jig works really well.
And after that it’s on to ripping down the side of the Wardrobe.
Since I modeled things out before headed in a shop
it really sped this part up,
allowing me to focus on making the cuts as accurate as possible.
To make the drawers I needed to make a quick jig
that would allow me to adjust a saw blade,
so I can make accurate rabbet cuts.
The goal for the jig is to transfer my practice session over to the final piece.
Since I’m in the middle of these cuts,
I find it easier to use a table saw rather than setting up a dado stack.
With the drawers being cut to the final dimension,
it was on to making a slot for to draw bottom.
The middle divider had me spinning my wheels for a while,
because I was trying to think about the best way to go about this.
I went for the dado joint here,
this may have cost me more time up front,
but this will end up being an easier joint during the glue up,
and a little less alignment headaches.
You could use a pocket hole jig for the connection here,
and just plug the hole,
or just use screws from the top and bottom shelf,
and plug those as well.
To be more fishing here,
I marked all the parts and took care of the prep work,
like drilling the location for the pocket hole screws prior to assembly.
I tend to forget about these connected jigs all the time.
They are huge help in hand,
allowing me to hold things square, while I focus on adding the screws.
Now that I have a frame,
I’m going to add the bottom shelf for the drawer enclosure.
in this case I have a model that I’m using as a guide,
the distance from the bottom depends on the clearance you need for the shoes.
Place in the first shelf 7 inch from the bottom
should be enough clearance for most of the shoes we have.
So feel free to space this as you please.
To add the top part for the drawer enclosure,
you want to locate a piece of plywood to have the data all running through it,
or unless you skip the data part.
Unlike the first piece I added,
this piece is a little more crucial,
when it comes to spacing of course.
The drawer cover need to fit within the opening
and have identical spacing going around it.
In this case, the side top and bottom
all have 1/8 inch of gap going around the entire cover.
But be sure to dado joint is facing up,
and at this point, you can use the middle divider
to set the spacing for the top shelf.
I added glue to the joint,
then work the divider into its place.
Making this connection could have been done prior,
but since I have such a tight fit,
it was easier for me to just work this into place.
And with this being done, it was on to add in the back.
While I was doing all of the cutting,
I also made provision for the plywood backing.
By making rapid cuts on the inside of the side panel,
it allowed a plywood to sit down into it.
This gives a cleaner look when looking at the Wardrobe from the side,
and not having to see the plywood ends.
My plywood glue on a surface of where the plywood will sit.
Then I added a few bright nails at the top and bottom,
to hold things in place.
And finally I add clamps in the placed weight in the location where I couldn’t necessarily place a clamp.
For the sheriff’s, I kept it to a minimum.
I made a rabbet joint on the trim that sit in front of the plywood,
you can totally do this with the router but since I’m really close to the table saw,
i just took multiple passes until I clean this up.
And all I have to do now is apply wood glue
to this simple two-port shelf.
And after joining the two parts together,
you’ll just add a clamp and let that sit and to the glue setup.
One thing I’m picking up on here
is doing a lot of the prep work in the beginning,
allow the assembly process to be a whole lot easier.
This is my first time making drawers this way,
and it really makes me want to explore different options in the future.
After gluing up all the joints,
all I had to do at this point is fight to keep everything square,
a band clamp is gold for this kind of clamping.
This get everything very close,
but it’s always best to whip out the tape measure, and check their diagonal measurements.
If the measurements are equal,
then everything is all squared,
and you can add additional clamps to hold everything
while the glue set up.
If you happen to have a source nearby,
you can possibly build this wardrobe with nicer wood.
I’m using birch plywood
because this is what’s available in my area.
Of course using plywood there’s a great chance you have exposed ends,
showing off those beautiful layers.
The layers are cool but I don’t really want to see all these lines,
so I’m gonna cover them up using an iron on edge band.
Edge band come in many different flavors as well,
so I’m using a birch plywood,
and I’m also going to use a birch edge band.
This was a bit of a process to go around
and cover all the visible ends.
Edge band come in 25-foot rolls,
so I only needed two packs of these for this entire project.
And to tidy up this build I used 3/8 dolls to cover all the pocket holes.
And with these in place I can now shift the focus to sanding.
After determining the spacing for the shelf,
I took a scrap piece of wood, and I used that for spacing.
Two shelves at the top are twelve inches apart,
the one at the bottom is about nine inches from the bottom.
The shelf that was previously made will just be placed on these support.
There won’t be glued or anything,
so if down the road you need to make an adjustment,
you could just pop these supports off,
and adjust it to your liking.
And what sanding being a thing of the past, it’s time to put on some finish.
The plan is to lean towards a two-tone look,
I could have used the left at one color,
but for me I wanted something that looked a little more than a big pile of wood
that was organized carefully.
With that in mind, I taped off the areas that I didn’t want to get paint on,
then I proceeded to add white paint in the areas that fit the look that I was going for.
ended up doing this back area where the closed section is
and i also did the drawer cover.
Ended up being disappointed because I bought some stain,
not necessarily looking at the name,
but rather looking at the color on the can.
And all of my stain buying days,
I’ve never picked up a can that the color was so visually different
from what’s in the can to what’s on the cover.
And it’s really getting late at night,
so I had to switch up the plan,
and just go away from the color that I initially wanted to use.
A couple of the sheets were from different hardware store,
one brand of the birch plywood have the same layer on both sides,
so they were the same shade.
And the other one has two different tones on it,
so when I put the clear coat on it.
Certain areas got darker than others.
But since it’s going in a closet, I’ll look past it.
And at this point, I’m getting super excited
because it’s almost done.
All I need to do now is install the hardware,
which includes the drawer slides to pull handle and the closed rod.
After installing the drawer slides,
it was on to installing a drawer itself.
As a way to attach the drawer cover, I’ll place the few coins down to act as spacers.
Then I added a few strips of hot glue onto the front of the drawer,
and attached to cover.
I carefully pull the drawer out,
then I’ll secure the drawer to the door cover.
And finally, I pre-drilled the holes to add the pull handle.
And although I’ve dressed this up with my belongings,
I actually made this for my little daughter.
It gives us a little more space to put some of her growing inventory.
I also made this with you in mind,
hoping that this can also solve some of your space issues.
