Optional

Inner Case

With the wardrobe completed, I turned my attention to the inner case. This small four-drawer compartment is completely optional. Ifs built almost entirely from 3A"-thick glued-up panels and will simply slide into the wardrobe.

The height of this case is determined by the drawers, which in turn are determined by the machined dovetails. (Mine were 5W tall.) If another method of joining the drawers is used, you can make the drawers as short or tall as you want.

I began by gluing up panels for the top and bottom (A), sides (B), and center divider (C), see Fig. 1. Then I cut all the panels to size except the center divider. It will be cut to fit inside the case later.
