    Default Has anyone ever made a pedestal for their dryer?

    I've been thinking about making one for my dryer. I found this link, but I'm unsure. I think I would like to make it a little higher so there is absolutely no stooping, just reach in and grab, but I wonder how that would change things? I'm not exactly handy this way.

    n- when i bought my latest ones ( my washer died and next day my dryer did - they were both bought second hand and well over 15 years old ) i bought my first new washer dryer that was actually a matching set in 20 years of marraige LOL
    so i splurged and
    i bought the pedestals with them - i love them - they have drawers and one i keep the beach/ pool towels and in another i keep socks- i dont have the time to sort and match socks so they just go in the bin after washing and people grab a pair as they need to - i cant imagine having to bend down .

    only issue i would see was making sure they were secured to each other so they didnt travel ( esp the washer when spinning something heavy like towels - off the base or if the base could be stronge hold them well enough for long term .

    I just need one for my dryer, not my washer. My washer is a top loader. I don't "think" I need to worry about my dryer rocking off (?)

    I just want to be sure before I set up an envelope to save for this and then measure and purchase materials, and try to put it together. It's a lot of money to waste if it's a bad design. It seems simple enough, and simple is what this less then handy gal needs.

    how much do you think it would cost ??

    would it be that much more to buy the actual one that goes with the dryer- or a generic one that would fit ?

    The least expensive one I could find was $139 before shipping. To make one would be around $50.
