The War (drobe) is Over...

...and I won!

Because the room is so titchy, I couldn't get a photo of the whole thing, so I assembled this from multiple images. What next? Wait and see.....

Tri-Fold Doors

As usual its taking ages, but I'm nearly there now. I have installed a three panel folding door on the main wardrobe, and made the side panel. More soon....

Class 4 Shelves

Of course I don't mean that these shelves aren't first class in every way, just that they were salvaged from Class 4 when they got new furniture up at the school where Janine works. They used to be for crayons and books and general school paraphernalia. Now, they look forward to a whole new life full of stylish knitwear and will probably provide support for some of the clobber visible here. That's recycling at its best.

Anyone who noticed that I've also put up architrave around the door gets a sweet.

Coming Along

This bit took several hours of patient whittling to match the profile of the ceiling.

There it is at the top. It fits almost perfectly. Some more framework is also visible.

And I made another shelf at the bottom, out of a left over bit of ply I found hanging about in the shed from when we did the kitchen nearly 8 years ago (still not finished). As luck would have it, it was almost exactly the right size.

A Man With a Plan

Loyal followers, I have come up with a plan for the construction of this wardrobe. I'm making the internal shelves and dividing piece into an integral part of the structure, instead of just assembling them inside it like I did on the other wardrobe.

First, I cut the dividing wall (after wisely measuring it twice) and checked that it fitted.

Then, with some help from my glamorous assistant J9 and a piece of batten, I got the divider and shelf together and firmly attached to the wall.

Now, the rest of the structure and framework can be attached to the divider. It should be good and strong and not move.
