My wife had a Honey-Do list for me.... Build a closet organizer for our son's room. Oh, And while you are at it put molding and Cedar in the closet too. "But Honey, why molding? It will just be covered up???? Guess who won.

I used pre-drilled shelves from Home depot and cut them to size using my PBB with a few home made stops. The whole job would have been easier if I had a B300 instead of B200......

Once I established the shelf size for the first piece, it was easy to repeat the process 12 times for the remaining shelves. I used Pocket holes for fasteners and built the shelf system in place! Amazingly the shelf came out level and plumb.

I did the trim on Saturday morning. The Cedar went up Saturday evening. Sunday evening about 4 PM I began cutting the shelves, and finished before dark. I used the Kreg jig screws to assemble the first cabinet that evening.
One thing that slowed me down was the holes for the shelves had to be drilled completely through the material on the center dividers. Monday evening I assembled the second shelf and also did the scribing to the wall for the last shelf. I will probably be finished tonight.

If I had to do another closet I could do it all in one or two nights. Putting the cedar in takes the longest. If you had a mini B300 setup with a short rail, you could do all the cutting in the closet.

This looks perfect. This is pretty much how I want to do my cabinets. Is the sidding made from MDF?

The back wall was covered with tongue and groove Cedar (Lowes). The shelves are Malamine (particle board covered with a white plastic. Home Depot carries this in sheets and precut.

This project is fairly simple with a Kreg Jig and EZ Smart guide.

Here are some more pictures as I get further along. I installed the third group today. I may cut a few more shelves for the two outer sections. The last section will be for hanging clothes. My wife will pick out the exact hardware she would like installed. Probably an update tomorrow.
