How To Make A Pull-Out Laundry Cabinet

A pull-out laundry cabinet is a great addition to any home. It allows you to keep your laundry hidden away and out of sight, while still being able to easily access it when you need to.

Plus, it can help to save space in your home since you won’t have a traditional laundry room taking up valuable square footage. If you’re interested in learning how to make a pull-out laundry cabinet, read on for instructions.

Materials Needed

  • Plywood
  • Ruler or measuring tape
  • Circular saw or jigsaw
  • Drill with assorted bits
  • High-grit sandpaper (100+)
  • Stiles (2x4s)
  • Construction adhesive
  • Cordless drill
  • Paint or a sealant (optional)

Instructions

Cut the Plywood

The first step is to cut the plywood down to size. You’ll need two pieces of plywood that are each 24”x48”. Use a ruler or measuring tape to measure and mark the plywood, then use a circular saw or jigsaw to cut it. If you don’t have either of those tools, you can also use a hand saw, but it will take longer. Be sure to wear safety goggles while cutting the wood.

Drill Holes for the Stiles

The next step is to drill holes for the stiles. The stiles are what will hold the cabinet together, so you’ll need to drill two holes in each piece of plywood. The holes should be 3” from the edge of the wood and evenly spaced. Use a drill with an assortment of bits to make the holes.

Assemble the Cabinet

The next step is to assemble the cabinet. Apply construction adhesive to the back of one piece of plywood, then attach a stile to the adhesive. Do the same thing for the other piece of plywood and stile. Be sure that the stiles are facing in opposite directions, then use a cordless drill to attach them together.

Sand and Paint (or Seal) the Cabinet

The final step is to sand and paint (or seal) the cabinet. Use high-grit sandpaper to sand down any rough spots, then give it a coat of paint or sealant. Let the cabinet dry completely before use.
