How To Build A Wardrobe

In today’s video I will be showing you how to build your own DIY fitted wardrobe with basic tools – starting with planning, and constructing the plinth and carcasses.

There are too many elements to this build to fit it into a single video so I will be charting the wardrobe build by way of weekly videos until it’s complete.
