The Wardrobe is made from the wood of the apple tree planted by Digory Kirke. The seeds are from the apple which he gets in The Magician’s Nephew. The tree grows straight and strong for many years. Unfortunately, the tree is blown down during a terrible wind storm.
Digory decides to make something with the wood. It is with this wood the wardrobe is made. The wardrobe later becomes the portal the Pevensie siblings use to gain entrance to Narnia in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. The Pevensie children stays with Professor Kirke to escape the deadly blitzes on London, England.
There is sometimes a solid back to the wardrobe. For example, it is solid when Lucy Pevensie tries to prove the truth of her visit to Narnia. At other times, it is not and the children travel back and forth to Narnia. The wardrobe opens near the iron lamppost in Narnia.
The wardrobe stands in an unused bedroom in Professor Digory Kirke’s country house. This is the house his parents inherits in The Magician’s Nephew. The wardrobe, when it is not a portal to Narnia, contains coats. The old, unworn fur coats are stored in it.
