This looks like it mostly been built of dimensional lumber common for their area. In the event you aren't familiar with dimensional lumber the chart in this article could helphttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lumber. Your likely to waste lumber,time, and effort trying duplicate this by unit conversions, probably to start from snatch designing it to fit your space, and the lumber available to you.

I'd really like to try to build this wardrobe but I'm sort of a novice. The whole thing is going to be an adventure and I'd like to start with the right size pieces of lumber. Is converting this or, as you suggest, starting from scratch, something you have done or could easily do? I'd be so grateful if someone could convert this list to something that would work in an American hardware store:


- 8 pieces of 195mm x 19mm x 75mm

- 11 pieces of 175mm x 19mm x 38mm

- 10 pieces of 25mm x 19mm x 38mm

- 4 pieces of 50mm x 25mm x 75mm

- About 30m of 50mm x 19mm x 38mm


Thanks in advance!

Surprised no one mentioned not putting two screws in the same place in the grain pattern on that board. Everything else aside, you stressed the same weak point twice in doing that. Offset your screws - combined with pilot holes and countersinking. Otherwise, nice work - and to the ikea suggestion, you don't get custom fit shelving by buying pre-packaged.

That is one fine looking wardrobe! Congratulations on a job well done. As for getting something like it from a store, no one ever pointed at something and said "I bought that," with anything like the same pride you will feel when you point at yours and say "I built that." Enjoy your shelves and your accomplishment.


One suggestion for future projects. When you need multiple identical pieces for a project, put some extra care into measuring and cutting the first piece and then mark it as the "master." Then use that piece as a pattern to measure all the rest. That way your dimensions won't "creep."

Or... Go to IKEA and for about the same price, buy pre-made shelves almost identical to this and assemble them with a few screws (included in the pack) and be done with it. Sorry to be a 'parade rainer' but for the cost of buying, cutting and assembling the wood bits and 'nailing and more nailing' you could buy pre-made sections and assemble them in half the time and have a similar end product. Not meaning to be harsh, but that looks similar to an already produced product for around the same price.

hi Bwaugh, you're perfectly right.

you can get something similar in IKEA or ARGOS for a bit cheaper. However, ...

* the measurements were not right (plugs, light switches in the way, etc) and it's quite tall (over 6.5ft)

* I bought sustainably sourced wood (IKEA is not know for that one)

* IKEA has also had some labour exploitation issues, so here I can feel proud of my purchase.


but as other mentioned below, the best part is the satisfaction of having done it myself (as I had never made furniture before).

Actually, IKEA has some nice stuff in pine wood (not pressed boards). Interestingly, the pine stuff is some of their cheapest products. But the issue is not that the stuff isn't well made, it's that it is designed to be shipped in a flat box and assembled by the consumer. So the joinery ends up being weak. Looks good when the furniture is stationary, but you gotta be careful when you move it because the corners don't have any strength. That's where DIY furniture has the advantage.

I do remodeling for a living and I had one customer buy some Ikea cabinets for me to install, I have done cabinets from the lowest range to the really high end stuff, I will tell you right now Ikea cabinets were the worst quality I have ever had the displeasure of working with.

Very good look. I like this much better than the wire shelves.


Pre-drill and screw together with finishing screws to keep from splitting. (and annoying the neighbors)


Mix a small can of desired color wood stain, a quart of gloss or semi-gloss varnish and a gallon of decking wood sealer in a gallon pump up sprayer for a quick spray finish. Obviously do this outside or well ventilated and on plastic. It is messy but painless. (I have also used mineral spirits instead of the deck sealer)


If you want you could do the spray finish before you assemble. Especially if you are building it indoors where you can't move it (closet)

I do carpentry professionally, if you want to avoid splitting the wood like in the pic. Invest about 5 dollars in a counter sinking drill bit. It will not only put a hole for the screw it will cut a cone shaped indention in the surface of the board so that the screw will go just below or flush with the surface without having to force it and split the wood. And like he said don't drill too close to the end of the board.

When you place a board on something to cut, don't have the other end of the board resting on something like in the pic with the saw. It will cause the wood to pinch your blade which will cause your saw to bind half way through the cut and be difficult to cut. So the piece that will fall off after it's cut should not be resting on a saw horse or anything like that. If you do that with an electric circular saw it can bind up and kick back at you. Also if you have wood glue on wood that you want to stain, even if it's so thin you can't see it. the part with glue will not take stain unless you scrape and sand off all the glue. If you use a circular saw don't use gloves unless they are really thin mechanics gloves. Thick gloves can get caught in the blade and pull your hand into the blade, it's very dangerous! But they are fine for a hand saw if you have delicate hands. HA HA.

Very nice!!! I wish I would have seen this a week earlier I just finished building a very similar structure, but I had a different concept in my mind. I would have borrowed some ideas from you though!


Another suggestion for some may be to use pocket hole screws, which might take a little longer to prep the wood, but assembly would go pretty quick. You could use high quality wood if you wanted and hide the holes too with plugs. An added bonus the pocket hole screws will keep everything tight and provide a strong joint.

After having a look at some wardrobes and seeing the exorbitant prices I decided to have a stab at building one. Custom made, for our room. In this instructable you can see the wood and tools I used, the steps and the outcome.


It ended up costing about £100 GBP (about $150) for sustainably sourced wood and a few drill-bits.

So here's the BOM (Bill of Materials):


flat-sawn red pine


- 8 pieces of 195mm x 19mm x 75mm

- 11 pieces of 175mm x 19mm x 38mm

- 10 pieces of 25mm x 19mm x 38mm

- 4 pieces of 50mm x 25mm x 75mm.


About 30m of 50mm x 19mm x 38mm


Some other stuff you'll need:


* plenty of Screws for wood of different sizes

* panel pins (or small nails)

* some reclaimed wood

The best option is to have the seller cut the wood for you.

But some of the wood was found so I just I improvised a semi-stable table (remember to wear gloves to prevent any cuts!)


Cutting with a wood saw should feel smooth, with little effort (if you feel like you have to push the saw into the wood then relax your arm and let the saw do the cutting!)


Check every now and then that your pieces are of the right length (accuracy would deteriorate when I compared A to B, then B to C, C to double of D etc ...)


I started assembling it on the floor. Keep an eye on screwing too close to the edges for the thin pieces of wood.
