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:
- Finish Nailer
- Tape Measurer
- Wood Glue
- Miter Saw
- Sand Paper
- 1 1/4″ Finish Nails
- 2″ Finish Nails
Since room dimensions vary, I’m only providing the kinds of lumber and millwork needed.
- 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.
