General contractor Tom Silva takes us along as he helps a homeowner solve an all-too-common issue: coat and shoe storage. Rather than letting these items collect in the entryway, Tom and the homeowner build a set of built-in closet storage shelves, complete with shoe drawers, cubby holes, and a coat rack. Made from plywood, Tom uses box joints and dados to create strong cabinets and shows the homeowner how to scribe the shelf for a perfect fit.
Cost: About $300
Time: A weekend
