Step 1

Cut the pieces for the Sides, Top, Shelf, and Bottom. Set your Kreg jig for 3/4” material and drill pocket holes in each side of the Top, Bottom, and Shelf. Assemble as shown with glue and 1-1/4” pocket screws. Make sure that all pocket screws face the inside of the Washer/Dryer or toward the ground so that they are less visible when the entire piece is assembled.

Step 2

Cut the Back piece. With the Kreg jig set for 3/4” material, drill pocket holes, facing the inside of the Washer/Dryer, in each side of the Back. Assemble as shown with glue and 1-1/4” pocket screws.

Back for The Design Confidential Free DIY Toy Plans How to Build a Children's Retro Washer + Dryer
Step 3

Cut the piece for the Front with the Door Openings and Drawer Openings.  Remember to drill pilot holes slightly larger than your jigsaw blade for these inside cuts. With the Kreg jig set for 3/4” material, drill pocket holes, facing the inside of the Washer/Dryer, in each side of the Front. Assemble with glue and 1-1/4” pocket screws.

Cut the rough pieces for the Washer and Dryer Door. Mark the shape of each door, and cut them out with your jigsaw. Remember to drill pilot holes slightly larger than your jigsaw blade for the inside cuts.

Step 6

Attach the 3” piano hinge on the straight side of the Door and position the Washer and Dryer Doors as shown. If desired, attach a knob for easy opening of each Door. Also, positioning a small magnet on the back of each Door and the Front can help keep the Doors closed.

Doors for The Design Confidential Free DIY Toy Plans How to Build a Children's Retro Washer + Dryer
Step 7

Next, cut your Plexiglas Door Window pieces. These pieces will cover the Washer and Dryer Door openings on the back, and overlap the Door openings by 1/2”. Use your Mirror Screws to secure the Windows into place. Be aware that you are screwing into 3/4” material and that you may have to use a shorter screw size in order to not entirely screw through the wood.

Step 8

Cut the pieces for the Drawer Stops. Assemble with glue and 1-1/4” brad nails or 1-1/4” wood screws (through the underside of the Shelf or Bottom and through the Side).

Drawer Stops for The Design Confidential Free DIY Toy Plans How to Build a Children's Retro Washer + Dryer
Step 9

Cut the pieces for the Filter and Soap Drawers. Cut a 1/2” diameter circle in the top center of the Drawer Fronts as shown. Since these pieces are so small, you will need to assemble with glue and 1-1/4” brad nails. Place Drawers into Drawer Openings.

Drawers for The Design Confidential Free DIY Toy Plans How to Build a Children's Retro Washer + Dryer
Step 10

For the Washer and Dryer Dials you could easily glue on retro styled kitchen timers. Another option would be to cut out a 2” circle from your 1/2” thick wood. Place the 2” circle as shown on the Front, and drill a hole in the center of this circle. Loosely secure the circle to the Front with a 2” long bolt and appropriately sized nut. This way, those little hands can still turn the dial.

Label the Dryer, Washer, Filter Drawer, and Soap Drawer. Next, paint pieces of the Washer and Dryer with accent colors and put those kids to work doing some laundry!

Step 1

Cut out the two Main Frame Sides. Drill a 1/2” hole 29” from one end of the Side and 1-3/4” from the top. Please note that all hole measurements will be TO the center of the hole.

You can drill more than 5 holes if you wish – this will give you even more adjustment opportunities! You will need to repeat this step twice – once for each Side. If you feel confident, clamp the Main Frame Sides together and drill both holes at once through the pieces.

Step 11

This is where the piece really starts to take shape! Lay out the Main Frame on a flat surface. Place the Middle Frame and Upper Frame within the Main Frame as shown. Attach the Upper Frame to the Middle Frame by aligning the drilled holes and inserting the (2) 2” clevis pins and hitch pin clips on both sides. Attach the Middle Frame to the Main Frame by aligning the drilled holes and inserting the (2) 3” clevis pins and hitch pin clips on both sides. Use the (2) 2” clevis pins and hitch pin clips to secure the Upper Frame to the Main Frame in the desired adjustment holes. Add a cushion for extra comfort! After finishing, you might find it helpful to apply a coat of paste wax to the areas of the Futon that pivot and rub against each other. Large washers may also be used for extra reinforcement at the end of the clevis pins. Lastly, use a sander on edges if you want a more rounded, softer appearance.
