Another walk-in closet

I designed another walk in closet, this time for Joan and Tom. (They had wire shelves before, and took them out for me before I started)

I built and painted the cabinets and shelves in my shop in about 2 days, and spent a few hours installing.

Shelves are painted plywood with stainless steel rail.

I also tacked together a shoe rack which stays in the right corner.

Shrinking Glass Cabinet Doors

Debbie had a nice glass cabinet in her suite and wanted another one. She already had the shelves and the doors; the problem was that the doors were too big for the space where the new cabinet would go.

So I took the doors to my workshop and carefully cut them shorter. I cut the frame on the tablesaw, being careful not to nick the glass; then I scored the glass with a small cutting wheel and snapped it off.

Then I glued the top part of the frame back on. There is a small line where the joint shows, but it’s not too bad with a bit of touch up paint.

Then I build the rest of the cabinet and installed it.
