My wife and I were in Lowe’s one day and she called me into the appliance department.
When we go in there I always know I am going to be out $500 bucks.
She showed me an extruded plastic riser to raise up the low front-loading washers and dryers, which we happen to have.
“Honey, it is only $400 and I would really like one”.
My response: “Well, hell, I can build one for double that!
Private joke between us ….............that needs no explanation to anyone who is married.
The joke also applies………actually started…………with me trying to explain to her all about “Free Venison”.
That pleading explanation went NOWHERE !!
Riser is 30” x 60” x 24”
¾ Plywood and ¾ MDF
Drawers are 19” high and about 17” wide.
And, I hope that I never again meet another set of extension drawer guides.
Still have PTSD from those damn things.
I do not understand how you guys make drawers “so simple even a caveman can do it”.
Well, not this caveman.
Please do not hold me accountable for the dog-puke brown color.
It matches the wall-floor trim she put in the utility room and utility bath.
THE BOSS is very happy.
I made the melamine top years ago.
I hate how the tops of the appliances always get so scratched up cuz the utility room is usually where everything goes as it come into the house.
Drives me nuts.
So I made that top and put those little clear feet on them that I got from Lee Valley………..usually used for cutting boards.
Now, I am also the happy camper.
