The Walk-In Dream Closet concludes with the construction of the lower chest of drawers, the upper three-door cabinet, as well as the associated drawer fronts and doors. I’ll even show you a great technique for attaching drawer fronts.

These smaller two pieces will be constructed differently than the larger pieces we made in part 1 of this series. Both the upper and lower cabinets will be fully constructed in the shop using rabbets and dados. Since the upper case needs doors and the lower case needs drawers, building everything in the shop really makes life a lot easier.

I’ll show you how to size your joinery and workpieces to get an exact final dimension that fits perfectly into the final space. For the bottom cabinet, I’ll show you how to build the drawers as well as hang the drawers using Blum undermount slides. For the upper case I’ll show you how to build beautiful frame and panel doors with hints of the Mission style.

I will then spend a good deal of time showing you a great technique for attaching drawer fronts.

Both cabinets are then installed in the space, trimmed, scribed and finished. With the drawer fronts and doors already fully constructed, the final step is simply adding them to the cases.
