Building a Shaker-Style Wardrobe
Beads and crown dress up a basic cabinet
Tom Hagood sought to find a traditional wardrobe design that allowed some creative interpretation for his own design details. In order for it to fit his client’s needs, he made a perspective sketch of the room before deciding on the proportions of his wardrobe, which ended up being 72 in. tall, 42 in. wide and 22 in. deep. He made a jig to help cut the mortises in the bottom of the sides in the carcase construction, and also explains how he built the doors and crown molding. A project plan gives dimensions.
