We’ll be working on the master closet for the next few weeks at lease, so expect bit by bit explanations and building details.
The first step is to cut the 3/4 inch plywood for 6 similarly sized towers.
The sides are
23 21 inches by 78 inches and will be attached top and bottom 32 (33) inches apart (outside measurement). Therefore the tops and bottoms are 30.5 (31.5) inches long allowing for 3/4 inch on each side.
Then I’m priming and painting all the lumber so I won’t have any hard to get to areas after it’s assembled.
While the paint is drying we will lay out a base with 2″ by 6″ lumber.
The spacing is 10 feet long and
23 21 inches deep. I bought 10-foot long 2 by 6s so we wouldn’t have to piece the base. We’re adding a cross piece at intervals where the towers will lean on the base, so three 32-inch spaces and one 24-inch space on my side and three 33-inch spaces and one 21-inch space on Charlie’s side..
We’re using a Kreg jig and pocket screws to hold the pieces together. We’ll drill holes on the outside of the top and bottom of the pieces so the screw holes and screws won’t show when the pieces are put together.
Then we’re tacking a piece of luan 32″ by 78″ onto the back of the structure.
If we can get this much finished today, I’ll be thrilled. Not likely, though.
Are you a good estimate of how long a job will take?
