Build Mudroom Locker

This Tutorial Helpful if you’re building your lockers

Build Mudroom Locker – Since I already had some experience building mudroom lockers within the farmhouse, the choice to create some within the new house was a no brainer. Our architect designed the right space for them in our plan, so it had been just a matter on behalf of me to work out what they might appear as if.

Once I had them designed and therefore the drywall guys were finished, I got busy building them. during this article, I’m getting to show how I did it. Hopefully all of you can understand how to make mudroom lockers easily and simply

All of the sizes during this tutorial are obviously for space I had to figure with. to create your own, you’ll get to tweak the measurements to suit your needs. Here’s what you’ll need:

  1. Finish Nailer
  2. Tape Measurer
  3. Wood Glue
  4. Miter Saw
  5. Sand Paper
  6. 1 1/4″ Finish Nails
  7. 2″ Finish Nails


Since room dimensions vary, I’m only providing the kinds of lumber and millwork needed.

  1. 1×12’s
  2. 1×2’s
  3. 1×6’s stain grade wood (seating)

Everywhere I put two pieces of wood together, you’ll assume that I nailed and glued it. I’m telling you this here, so I won’t bore you by repeating myself in every step.


Build the bottom

Any time I build built-ins, I prefer for the baseboard within the room to continue round the bottom of what I’m building. I feel it creates a more integrated look. Our baseboard is 7 1/2″, so that played a task in determining the locker base height.

For the front of the bottom, I used a 1×10″. I also used 1×10″ for the ends and support pieces and cut them to the size shown within the diagram above. I used my finish nailer to lock all of the pieces.

Then employing a table saw, I cut a 1×6 right down to 4 3/8″ wide. I used this alongside a 1×12 to form the highest of the bottom. I nailed these two boards to the ends and supports.
