Introduction: Washing Machine and Dryer Pedestal / Stand: a DIY Happiness!
We all know washer and dryer pedestals are VERY expensive and are ridiculously priced. You can certainly buy another washer for the price of the two pedestals; or perhaps a new refrigerator! This instructible shows you how to make yourself a cheap pedestal or stand for your washer and dryer.
The advantages of having a pedestal or stands for your dryer and washer is that you eliminate the need to bend over to pick up your laundry. Also you can place items under the pedestal such as soap, laundry detergents, etc. The pedestals are a practical accessory for front loading washing machines and dryers.
Step 1: Materials
Plywood (the thicker the better. mine is about an inch thick)
2" x 4" wood
Drill or hammer
Screws or nails ( 3 inch screws/nails, 2 inch screws/nails)
All items can be bought at your local hardware stores. I got all these at home depot. The plywood cost $15 since it was very thick. The 3 pieces of 2" x 4" x 10" cost $ each.
Since I already measured the base of both my washer and dryer, I went a head and had home
depot cut the plywood for an extra cents per cut thus eliminating back pains and muscle
sore from cutting the plywood myself. I highly recommend doing this.
Step 2: Take Measurements
1. Make measurements around the base of your washer and dryer. My measurement was 27" around, a perfect square. Mark this measurement ion the plywood. This will serve as the top panel where the washer and dryer would sit. 27" x 27". (have Home Depot cut it)
2. Make measurements for the height of your pedestal. In this instructible, the height for my pedestal was 15". Most pedestals are around this height range.
3. Mark your measurement for height on the plywood and also your length. This will serve as the side panels. In this case two 15" x 27". (again, have Home Depot cut it)
4. Measure and mark the 2" x 4"s. Two 25" for the length and four 13" for the height. The four 13" would serve as the leg support .
*note* 25" is the length because the plywood was about an inch thick. Depending on the thickness of your plywood, you just have to make the necessary adjustments. You don't want the side panels protruding on the side. We want to seamlessly connect the woods together.
To do this, just subtract the thickness of the 2 side panels from the main length of the base of your washer or dryer. That will be the length of your 2x4's. Hope that made sense.
Step 3: Make the Cut
1. Cut the plywood-- Top Panel and Side panels.
2. Cut the 2" x4"s.
3. Connect the one 25" with the two 13". You can use nails or screws which ever you feel comfortable. I use screws this way I prevent the would from cracking. Also I drilled a hole before I screwed it in.
4. Do the same with the other 25" and two 13".
5. Connect the 2 x 4's into the side panels. Secure using screws or nails.
6. Place the top panel in place. Secure using screws and nails.
7. To cover the back, measure from each end of the side panels. That will be your size. Height will still be 15".
Step 4: Paint It!
Now paint that beautiful work of art to match your washer and dryer. You can brush or spray paint it! Which ever you choose, be creative.
If you feel that you don't need to use the space underneath the washer and dryer, just measure and cut a piece of plywood and nail or screw it in place. That size would be 15" x 27" (in my case). After that, You are are done! You've basically have made a platform!
If your washer and dryer are inside your house, instead of painting the wood, you might want to consider carpeting the top and side panels. This should help minimize the noise radiated from the washer onto the wood. You can also, instead of painting, cover it with some kind of vinyl, or tolex. Have fun and be creative.
Step 5: Relax and Enjoy!
And finally, enjoy your work of art. Say good bye to back pains and most of all to those ridiculously priced pedestals. Best of all, the total cost for this project? Less than $ PRICELESS!!!
Now if I could just find the time to make the drawers to be continued!

How to Make a Pedestal Stand for a Washing Machine and Dryer
By Bonnie Kimbrel
Adding a pedestal for your front load washer and dryer brings with it many benefits. Some of these benefits include better ergonomics, increased stability for the washer and dryer, and cost savings over buying factory-produced pedestals. The most important factors to consider when building a pedestal are stability and sturdiness. When a washer is filled with clothes and water, it will get very heavy and that extra weight requires a sturdy base. This article will guide you through building a large, single pedestal meant to securely support both your washer and dryer.
Measure your washer and dryer using the tape measure. The critical dimensions are the full width and depth of the machines sitting side by side; the height of the machines are also important if they are installed under shelving or cabinets.
Determine the size of your pedestal using your measurements. If possible, add a minimum of 3 inches to the overall width and 5 inches to the overall depth. The extra 5 inches will allow room for the dryer hose, electrical and plumbing connections. For example, if your washer and dryer together are 56 inches wide and 30 inches deep, the pedestal needs to be 59 inches wide by 35 inches deep. How high you would like your pedestal is up to you, but 10 to 12 inches is a commonly produced height. The width of your lumber will be the base height of your pedestal. If you are using 2-byinch material the inch lumber dimension will be the base height.
Measure the lengths that you will need out of the dimensional lumber to create the frame and joists. The front and back pieces of the frame will be the overall width and the ends and joists will be the depth minus the thickness of the front and back piece. The joists will add stability and strength to the pedestal and can be spaced between 8 to 12 inches apart. Using the example dimensions from the previous step, you would need two lengths at 59 inches and eight lengths at 32 inches. The angle brackets will be attached to the inside corners of the frame to minimize lateral flex.
Cut the lengths of framing lumber with a circular saw. It is a good idea to measure each piece before you cut, since every time you cut, a quarter-inch or so is taken up by the saw blade. Once you have all your pieces, you can start assembling the frame.
Lay out a frame by butting the two end lumber pieces between the longer front and back pieces. You will be placing the pieces on their edges so that the height of 10 or 12 inches, for 2-byinch and 2-byinch dimensional lumber, respectively, is achieved.
Mark where you want to drill on the frame using a pencil. You will want at least two screws at each joint, one closer to the top and one closer to the bottom.
Using a countersink drill bit, pre-drill each hole where you marked the lumber in the previous step.
Attach the four pieces to create the frame using the 3-inch screws in the pilot holes. Make sure not to completely tighten the screws just yet.
Mark where the angle brackets will be fixed in each corner of the frame. An easy way to do this is to use the pre-drilled holes in the bracket as a guide. Be sure to avoid the screws used for the frame joints.
Pre-drill for the 1 1/4-inch screws to be used in securing the angle brackets at the previously made marks.
Set the brackets in place and begin to secure them using the 1 1/4-inch screws. Again, do not fully tighten the screws.
Insert and equally space the joists between the front and back sides of the frame. The joists should also be placed on the side dimension, so that they are the same height as the frame.
Mark on the outside of the frame where you need to pre-drill through the frame and into the ends of each joist, then pre-drill where your marks indicate.
Insert the 3-inch screws into the holes you just made and screw them down enough to where the joists won't slide around.
Tighten all the screws on the frame, including those holding the angle brackets, then do the same to the joist screws. At this point every screw should be fully fastened and the frame should be rigid.
Measure and cut the plywood to fit the top your pedestal. If you would like an overhang on the exposed edges, take that into account when determining the final measurement. For example, if the pedestal is 59 inches wide and 35 inches deep and the pedestal is exposed on two sides, you might want an overhang on the two exposed sides. If you want the overhang to be 1 inch, you would add 1 inch to the over all width and depth, so your plywood sheet would be cut 60 inches wide by 36 inches deep.
Place your frame in the location where it will be installed.
Apply a bead of the construction adhesive on the top edges of the boards making up the frame and place your sheet of plywood over the top.
Use the 1 5/8-inch screws to secure the sheet of plywood to the frame; spacing each screw roughly 12 inches apart.
Place the level on top of the pedestal. Insert shims as necessary under the pedestal to make it level. It doesn't have to be perfect, since most washers and dryers have adjustable feet to level the units, but leveling will make the pedestal more stable.
Trim off the excess shimming material and use the construction adhesive to glue the shims in place. Decorative molding or quarter round can be added at the base to cover up any visible shims.
Use the wood putty to cover up all the screws. Once the wood putty dries, lightly sand the whole pedestal in preparation for paint.
