Here is a laundry room cabinet that my wife and I designed to go above the washer and dryer.
Since these are “High Efficiency” units that sit on pedestals, I had to be careful with dimensions
above and around the units. My wife also wanted “space” above the units to set stuff on, as well
as be able to place laundry baskets there every now and then… Anyways, these are made out of Oak plywood for the carcases, with hardwood face frames for trim.
I biscuit joined the face frames to the cabinet boxes.
I used General Finishes Rosewood colored water based stain, with about 5 coats of HVLP sprayed on water based poly.
The last 2 coats were Minwax Wipe-On Poly, and finally a coat of wax.
Man, that Wipe-On poly is so easy to use, I am really loving it. I’ll use more of that in the future. The cabinet is attached to french cleat across the top/back, with a couple screws at the bottom insides
into studs. My son helped me hoist it up there one Saturday morning…what a beast.
Now to begin filling it up…
