In this post, I will show you how I made this modern wardrobe, made from "Birch plywood". It has a simple design but if you like modern this may be calling your name. Whether you are looking to add organization, improve your closet space or just looking to add a wardrobe in a spare bedroom, it’s possible. The overall dimension is 75in high by 41.5in wide by 19in deep. This design is completely customizable and can certainly go bigger. I am pretty happy with that way this came out.

Materials Used: For the dimensions/cut list Click Here

3 – 3/4 (4×8) Birch plywood (structure)

3 – 1 by 12 by 48 pin lumber (drawer)

2 – Roll of edge band

1 – 1/4 (4×8) plywood (back and drawer bottom)

1 – pair of 16in drawer slide

1 – 15in drawer pull (handle)

Edge band trimmer

Step 1: Getting Started

First, cut down the plywood sheets down to a manageable size, I will be using a circular saw and Kreg rip cut guide. Once the sheets become manageable tool them over to the table saw. I prepared all the cut’s prior to assembling. Note: The original design did not have the rabbet joints for the drawer. I am stating this because the measurements for the width of the drawer lumber (front and back) will be slightly longer than in this cut list. Build your frame and then your the drawer last.
To follow along with the video I made a quick jig so that I could set the depth of the table saw blade. This was key to me being able to put the blade back in the same position after adjusting. The jig should also help you set the distance between the blade and the fence. It’s always a good idea to use the scrap wood to test on before making cuts to your final project. It’s easier for me to use the same table saw blade rather than changing to a dado stack. After the drawers are cut to the final dimension, make a slot for the drawer bottom.

For the middle divider, I cut a dado joint. It may be more work upfront but will save time in the end with aligning. You can use a pocket hole connection jig to plug the hole or use screws from the top and bottom shelves as well.

For efficiency, drill all the locations for the pocket hole screws prior to assembling.
