Our laundry porch space looked like this when we bought the house.
We relocated the machines, stripped the wood, and re-did the plaster.
I also made windows for the back of the porch.
In time for the recent home tour, Kristin wanted me to make a small table for the space.
A few years back Kristin’s school was being “renovated” and all of the old built-ins were going to the dump. With permission, we took some random school shelves that happened to be fir.
I planed two shelves down and glued them back together.
I squared the shelf and ran a tongue for the breadboard.
Cleaning up joint.
I tried just pinning with 1/4” dowels but ended up screwing through the breadboard and plugging the ends.
The base was ordered from a restaurant supply store for $25.
Someday we might make a new base but it was a quick fix for the space.
