Materials: For this hack you need 2 Molger shelves and 1 (or 2, I used 1) Molger benches. Saws, drill, screws, nails and “brackets”.
Description: After moving we had too many Molger units, and to save space I decided to build a shelf that fit around my washer.
It would be sweet if the Molger bench and shelf could play together like Legos, but they don’t. So you’ll need a lot of screws and plugs. Good tools are a must (or at least makes thing a lot easier).
What I would have done different:
Make the “seat” first, I made the over washer shelf first, and it was difficult moving after.
Make the shelf in a room with a flat floor, (not the bathroom, like me).
Make more support brackets.
For a nicer finish use the remaining boards to make a “tile” like finish. It also hides inaccuracies.
Allow space for the tubes on the side of the washer (also some space over he washer to avoid shaking). For me it was a tight fit.
