Freestanding mudroom lockers for our utility room. Nothing to complicated about the build. I did make my own edge banding for the plywood because we wanted it to tie in with the beadboard backing and couldn’t find a ready made molding.

To make the molding I took a 1×6 cut a straight edge on the table saw. Then set up router table with a little bit to cut a V shaped grove 1/2” from the fence… Ran the 1×6 through on the edge, flipped it around and ran it through again creating the parallel grooves. Then I would trim that edge off at 1/4” thick on the table saw.. Repeat until I had enough molding. 1/2” thick by 3/4 wide. I then sanded the grooves to create the rounded ( bead) part in the middle. That was a bit tedious.

Bench top is just plywood for now, but the way I mounted it I can replace it later if we decide to replace with a nice stained wood. For now the colors in the room are black and white so we just did black lacquer and a satin poly top-coat.
