Master Bedroom 2009
This built-in drawer set was the final stage of our master bedroom remodel project. The room was carpeted and had stained trim and doors throughout. There was a closet with two sets of full height dark stained (ugly) bi-fold doors on that side of the room. My brother Steve, my friend Rick and I gutted the old closet wall, sheet rocked and finished the ceiling and wall then framed for the built in. I made the drawers in my shop and installed them after trimming out the frame work. The drawers are 30” wide by 28”, 24” and 12” deep made from ¾” birch plywood with ½” plywood floating bottoms. The cedar closet liner tongue and groove is also floating and installed in the dado cut. I used pocket joints to construct the drawers and placed them so they can’t be seen when the drawers are opened. The final trim is poplar with bronze “pulled potato” handles.
