Step 2: Round-off the top of the Vertical Panels

Make a mark on the 1' x 4' boards for the center of the arc.  The mark is in the middle of the board and the same distance from the top.  So, if the board is exactly 12" the mark would be 6" from the top and 6" from the side.

On a scrap board mark out two locations that are the same distance apart as the radius of the arc measured above.

Find a bolt from your hardware jar that is long enough to fit through both the scrap board and the panel.  Drill a hole in the panel at the marked location and in one of the marked locations on the scrap board just large enough for the bolt to fit thru.  In the second location on the scrap board drill a hole just large enough for your pencil.  Attach your scrap board to the panel, insert your pencil and draw the arc at the top of the panel as seen in the second picture.

Cut out the arc with your jig saw.
<p>Very nice idea...</p>
very nice
This is fabulous. I want to make one for my doggie clothes!
Oh my! I wish I had had this (and all those awesome dresses!!!) when I was little :D You should enter this into the <a href="http://www.instructables.com/contest/holidaygifts2012">Holiday Gifts Contest</a>!
Cute! What an awesome idea!
What a great idea! It could easily be decorated to suit any style, and has lots of other possibilities. It would be very useful as a winter outerwear organizer for young kids. You could put a boot tray and plastic bin in the bottom for boots and hats/gloves/scarves, and then little ones could quickly find their own stuff for those busy mornings getting ready for school!
I like that idea. We have winter gear all over the place right now!
Very nicely designed and finished!
BRILLIANT!!!!!!!! <br>What a great idea!
wonderful! Can't wait to make this with a small tweek, going to use a pre-existing boy box base
