John Doyle, the owner and craftsman at Closet Butler, located in Pompton Plains, New Jersey, designed this custom wardrobe and closet cabinetry. 

The cabinetry features wide stile shaker doors in thunder grey paint with frameless ¾-inch construction. The doors, trim and moldings are paint-grade hardwood and the boxes are 3/4 clear coated maple plywood. Hardware includes Grass soft closet under mount glides. Additional accessories include Hafele pant racks, Drawer Box mounted cell charging stations, a pull-down ironing board, LED puck and strip lighting (recessed), lacquer drawer fronts with crystal knobs, beveled mirror and more.
Doyle says the custom closet was designed using KCD software and fabricated on a Biesse Rover nested CNC, Biesse Edgebander, sliding table saw, and other standard shop tools including a drill press router and more.
This project was entered in the 2017 Best In Wood competition, sponsored by Woodworking Network. (The 2018 Top Shelf Design Awards is accepting submissions. Enter now.)
