My new laundry room
« on: August 26, 2017, 10:24 PM »
Just finished the new laundry room after a busted pipe destroyed the last one. I'm new to building and I received the TS 55  REQ track saw and 1400 Router as gifts for Christmas last year. The cabinet building videos from The Poplar Shop really helped. The rest I just kind of figured out. We have a few small dogs and also watch friends' dogs now and then and wanted the bottom cabinets to be dog kennels. I used prefinished plywood for the boxes and used maple for the face frames and doors. The center of the doors are mdf.

Wow, great job, and even more so if you're new to this kind of work!  I'd say you've ensured more excellent Christmas presents coming your way.   [big grin]

Maybe I'm just obtuse, but I can't tell where the washer/dryer is going?

I was wondering the same thing, but figure the water heater and washer got moved to a new location.

Thanks everyone!

I actually didn't post the picture of the washer/dryer but they are stackable and located in a nook across from the smaller counter and near the small access door to under the house - so definitely still in the laundry room. In the fourth picture you can barely see the door of the washer.

The water heater actually was moved under the house with the furnace.

Nice job...I really like the colors also. Just curious, did you purchase the maple ply from a big box?

I actually purchased the maple from a local lumber yard. At the end, I needed one additional length for a door and so I picked some up at a big box store and I found the quality to be quite different. Lots of tear out from the planer (which was new). So I stuck with the wood from the lumber yard.

Looks great. Shame the forum software will not cooperate with handling image rotation.

What I have been doing to try and remove any such conflicting information in the image
file is to remove all personal information from the images before uploading them. It seems
to help on most images I have posted in the past few weeks.

Thanks for the tip! I fought with that for a while before I gave up ;)

Looks fabulous, I love the countertops.

And the dog kennels are great, we could benefit from something like that.

This is your first run at cabinetry and you built this all with only a TS55 and a 1400??!!?  The attention to details and quality of work here is incredible.  Very, very impressive work.

The dog kennels are working out great! I just ordered light weight aluminum bars and they turned out pretty good and were not very expensive. The biggest issue I ran into was that the bars seem to bend the wood slightly and so it was tough to get them straight.

I totally forgot I have the domino too! I can't believe I left that out! I couldn't have done the doors without them. I did pocket screws for the face frames and dominos and glue for the doors. Thank you! The cabinets aren't perfect but I definitely learned a lot and will do better on the next project I hope which is the master closet. I hope to get a table saw before that project.
