BLACK+DECKER B+D Contributor 193 Projects
An adjustable closet system puts clothes and accessories within reach for people of all sizes. Build your own closet system to attain accessibility features like roll-under space, as well as adjustable shelves and rods. Add closet accessories, such as hooks, additional rods or shelves, pull-out drawers, baskets, slide-out belt and shoe racks, and fold-down pants racks to customize your system.
The closet organizer shown here can be adapted to fit almost any closet. It is a simple plywood cabinet with three adjustable shelves and space above and below for additional storage and easy access. Use finish-grade plywood for the cabinet and support piece. Then paint, stain, or protect the wood with a clear finish. solid wood trim covers the plywood edges and lends strength to the shelves. For this, you can use clear pine or a hardwood such as poplar, oak, or maple. The shelves shown in this project are 11" deep. You may want to make them deeper. Just keep in mind that shelves longer than 36" may require additional support to prevent sagging.
