Renovating my new place and need to get couple of closets re-done and not sure whether to go with IKEA or splurge on the more expensive options.

Exactly what I need. How did you end up getting it and putting it all together making sure that it fit? Looks real good!!!

You need to get the measurement of your space and look at all the available pieces in a modular fashion. Even look at professionally built complete closets and replicate those DIY.cRaZyRaVr wrote: ↑May 26th, 2017 10:45 amExactly what I need.

I have two large sliding door closets in the bedroom that I would like to organize like this, with hangers and not sure whether to hire someone to get it all done or get IKEA / HD / Lowes etc. stuff and start building.

I basically made it fit. The centre unit is a standard size and the two side units were cut down (width-wise) to fit the space I needed. The attached it all together and fastened to studs in the wall. It's not going anywhere.

I'm more jealous of your table saw than the closet! Have you done the hot dog test on your table saw yet?TheGreatGazoo wrote: ↑Jul 11th, 2018 11:39 pmI just completed a closet last weekend for my daughter. I just grabbed a few sheets of MDF and some pine boards and put it together. Super strong build with 3/4" MDF and box joints on the drawers. It was a fun project and came out better than I expected. One thing I found out after the fact is that the walls in the closer were not true, by a long shot. LOL All in with the MDF, pine boards, drawer glides, clothes rod and drawer handles came in just under $400. The soft close glides were one of the most expensive parts.
See pics below.

Ha! Not yet. The cartridges are $100 so not gonna tempt it but I do have a spare regular one just in case. They do say they will send you a free one if you send it to them and their research shows it was a skin contact. I saw the demo at Lee Valley though. Regardless of the safety mechanism, the saw itself is fantastic and to me it was worth every penny. Wifey loves it just because of the safety factor.
