Hi Everyone,

I'm starting my first project and am seeking some basic advice. 

I'd like to build a closet system similar to this:

(The dimensions are almost exactly the same as my space)

My questions are:

What type of material should I use for everything? Are the drawer fronts typically the same material? 

I went to Home Depot today and looked at their birch plywood and everything they have is in rough shape. Delaminated/chipped surfaces, dents in the sides, some of the interior plywood looks hollowed out, etc... 

Is this what people use or touch up, or is there some place I should be getting better materials from? (lumber yard, etc).

Is painting (and sanding) typically done after everything is installed in a project like this?

I imagine it is (excluding maybe some shelves and drawer fronts?)

Thank you!

K5 Review

I really like the k5 it is faster to change from different size of screws. I hesitated to update because of some of the reviews about the dust collection hook up. That to me one of the improvements it works perfect no dust to cleanup .…
