We needed a place to put laundry so we could fold it. When we got an upright freezer to put in the laundry room, I had to remove some shelves. This gave me room to design a table. I have been concentrating on shop and home projects after holiday shows. My wife has some good ideas if I have the time. I had a piece of 3/4” Spalted, Curly Myrtlewood that was 38” x 24”. I traded for it and some larger pieces a few years ago. I used some newer Myrtlewood from a local mill for the legs, apron, and shelf. The edge of the top nearest the walkway is rounded. I finished it with Spar Urethane. The cats have their food bowls under the bottom shelf. I like using Myrtlewood for projects like this. The cost of the wood is reasonable and the light colors lighten up a room or garden space. Unless you cover it in laundry and surround it with recycling containers!!

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

Robert, Robert, Robert, Spalted curly myrtlewood with that cool bark inclusion in the laundry room? It is beautiful, but the laundry room?

Keep up the good work my friend.

I agree it is too nice for the laundry room, but it is a main entry way to the kitchen from my wife’s sewing room and the carport and my shop. It will be seen there if not too cluttered.

If you can spare it, flaunt it. I love the grain on the table top and who doesn’t like a little laundry room BLING. Good job.
