Taking a cue from the Scottish Arts & Crafts tradition, this classic armoire offers plenty of storage space inside. And you’ll enjoy the challenge of building it.
Historically speaking, armoires met a need in homes that didn’t have closet space built in. Their size, combined with much more modest collections of clothing, made them very popular pieces of pragmatic furniture for a long time. Today, many homes have closets big enough to fit an armoire. While they’ve mostly been retired from their previous duties, they still can work in other parts of the house like you see here. The case of this armoire is mostly cherry plywood. The solid cherry trim provides a warm fi eld for the inset tiles. Handsome hardware complements the finished piece. Inside, you’ll find shelving and hanging space you can tailor to suit your needs. Below that, there are two generously sized drawers that add to the storage options.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
