Earlier this year we decided to replace our 18 year old washer & dryer with a new front loader. My wife wanted to get the expensive pedestals, however, being a thrifty woodworker, I thought of a better solution. This 60” x 31” table sits on some easily removed brackets with a French cleat in the back. The cleats are mounted to studs and the lower brackets are attached to the drywall with toggle screws. A couple of pocket screws into the brackets resulted in a rock solid table. The 1 1/4” thick table is constructed of MDF, laminate, and poplar. Brackets are Baltic birch plywood, poplar, and recycled particle board. This is a much more efficient use of space in our small laundry room.
Cabinets were completed last year. Construction: birch plywood, melamine bottom & shelves, poplar & MDF doors.
