Dress Up Center/Bookshelf

I wanted to build something special for my cute little niece. My brother and sister-in-law said how much she enjoyed her dress up clothes so naturally she would need a place to store them. No ordinary closet would do, and the dress up centers for sale looked a little too childish or cheap. I not only wanted to build her something beautiful but something that would out last this short “dress up” stage. So I decided on a style that I liked and I included removable shelves and made the rod and supports easily removal as well. Making this is a timeless piece that could be used for a long time.

Hey Scott,

Sorry about the delay in getting back to you. The Kreg rip-cut is great for quickly breaking down plywood. It's cheap and easy to store. It's actually much easier and safer to use than a table saw for this purpose.

However, if you think you'll ever do any precise cuts or mitered rip cuts, I would definitely keep the table saw.

I just picked up a table saw.  Should I return it and get the DIY kit and get a circular saw?  The table saw would take up a lot of space and maybe some nice jaw horses a circular saw and the DIY kit with the rip cut guide would be a better setup.  Thanks for your input.
