Washer/Dryer Pedestal

‹Return to Previous Page
Description

Description

This idea came from a trip to a home center to buy one of those pedestal drawer units that go beneath front-loading washers and dryers. They cost about $250+ for each machine, and they’re little more than poorly designed junk! I knew I could do better! This one is designed for both machines. It has a lot more drawer space than the commercial versions, it’s on wheels so it can be moved, and it was carefully engineered to support the tremendous weight on top for years and years to come. Best of all, it’ll cost you just a fraction of price of the store bought units!

This is a great project for a beginner because it requires only a circular saw and utilizes materials you can buy in a home center.

This basic plan includes a dimensioned cut list and simple drawings so you can see how it goes together. I recommend you also watch the free videos below for additional tips.

  • Basic PDF Plans (dimensions, cut list and basic assembly drawings)
  • Dimensions: Inches
  • Tools required: Circular saw, drill, router

You will NOT receive a paper plan. You will be sent a link to download a digital PDF document that is compatible with most computers and digital devices. You may print it yourself or take it to a printing service. We do not provide 3D Sketchup models or CNC G-code.

Table Saw Taper Jig

This is my version of an idea first presented in Fine Woodworking Magazine (Issue #178) by Richard Beebe. This taper jig works like a sled, securely holding your workpiece and keeping your hands safe throughout the cut, even for narrow tapers, such as chair legs. My version is a little different that his. It adjusts equally from both ends of the fence, and will cut wide panels as well as narrow stock.

Saw Bench

Every workshop should have at least one saw bench. Not only is this an indispensable tool for sawing, it’s also a comfortable and portable workspace for chopping, boring and all sorts of other tasks. This version of the classic saw bench includes some extra features. For one thing, there’s a split that runs down the center to support both sides of the board while you rip down its length. There are holes for holdfasts to secure your work while you drill or chop sitting down. And it’s large enough to use as a step stool or an extra seat while shooting the breeze. But the best part is it can be built with some old construction lumber!

Table Saw Sliding Crosscut Table

The Europeans have had a secret for years- their saws have sliding tops for easy and accurate crosscuts! We can buy attachments for our saws in the US, but they are EXPENSIVE. So why not make your own? This one mounts to the side of your contractor or cabinet saw (for smaller saws, use with the TS Workstation) and includes an adjustable miter fence, even a storage drawer. Great for working with plywood panels!

Router Plane

Router planes are amazing tools, but they are also largely misunderstood. And that's a shame, because they are extremely useful in both a hand-tool and a power-tool workshop. Rather than cutting profiles, as a modern router does, a router plane is for cutting to depth with precise accuracy. They can be used to make the bottom of a table saw dado perfectly flat. They can fine tune a rabbet or a tenon. They are the perfect companion to many power tools with nearly unlimited uses.

My version of the router plane is easy to make from a scrap of wood and some easy to find hardware. And unlike other homemade versions, this has a micro-adjuster to set the depth and shaving thickness.

Even the rails are made from wood! It's designed to fit any saw from small, bench top units to large cabinet saws, with or without side tables. There's even a built in pencil & accessory holder! (This project can be used on its own, but it is also designed to fit our deluxe table saw workstation)

Plywood-Cutting Storage Cart

If you use a lot of plywood or if you just like to keep a few sheets on hand, this is the project for you! It's a storage cart that organizes both full and partial sheets. But it also includes a clever feature that holds large panels upright so you may break them down easily  with a circular saw and an edge guide. No more carrying and flipping big, heavy sheets around the shop. Do it all right on the storage cart! The whole thing is mobile so you can roll it around and tuck it in a corner. And it's built from inexpensive construction lumber.

2×6 Roubo Workbench

Andre Roubo was among the oldest of the old-timey woodworkers, and the unique drawings found in his eighteenth century book have inspired woodworkers for over 200 years. Stumpy has designed a version of this bench which is by far the easiest, least expensive version to make. You can build one without difficult joinery, and without compromises in strength and features, all from cheap construction lumber! It's big, beefy and full of all the features a hand tool woodworker, or even a power tool woodworker, would appreciate.

X-Y Sliding Drill Press Table

This is a drill press table unlike anything you have ever seen before. Despite its compact profile, it is PACKED with features, including two drill bit storage drawers, a quick-release T-style fence, built in dust collection, replaceable inserts and a clever mechanism that allows the table surface to slide forward and back, as well as left to right! When combined with the built in stops, or simple layout lines on a piece of tape, this mechanism can make your drill press do a LOT more! Use it to make rows of holes for shelf pins, etc., all with easy repeatability. You can even put a router bit in the drill press and use the table for milling shallow mortises and inlays. You're bound to find even more uses for this unique table!
