Following to my pregnant wife vision, we decided to buy a clothing closet for our new baby boy.
We presented the closet plans to some professional carpenters and we got bids which exceeded our expectations and were over $4500.

I decided to take matters into my own** hands!
I have some experience with wood working and I have some relevant tools, but I have never built such a thing...

Welcome to my journey, hope you will have fun as me...

**My father took a big part in that project, even though he has no experience with wood working :)
