I love the off beat thoughts and experiments, and hope they continue to get posted.




I am sure there will be a couple more in the future, hopefully useful for someone.

Thanks.


If you want to do something, you will find a way.
If you don't, you will find an excuse.

Well, I decided to change my plans just a bit, in the bathroom. After considering my options, I went back to an earlier design where the toilet is at the rear, and the shower area will be next to the kitchen area.

Biggest reason is the height of the ceiling. It is higher towards the front than it is at the back, since the roof is tapered towards the rear a few inches.

That allows me to raise the shower floor a little more towards the front.

Yea, that's the pattern I used for the the sides of the sink. I took that apart so I could use the wood.

I needed something to hold up the shower floor, so I figured left over wood should work just fine. It turns out, putting 2 of them together is exactly the height that I need for said floor.

Yes, I left a "hole" in the one corner so I can run a water line through there to the kitchen side. That should work just fine.

Then it was time to add some plywood on top of said base. Yea, it's just a hair out of square. That is what trim is for. Lol.

The next owner, while doing a major bathroom rebuild, will pull his hair out trying to figure why you cut the ends of the 2X4 with rounded ends.

Maybe I should put a note under there for the poor next owner! Lol...

Next up is to create a new platform for the toilet to sit on, that is a little more substantial than this one is.

Soooooo, I wanted to use 1/2 in thick plywood for the sides. I have some plywood, but the pieces I have, are not large enough to create those pieces.

Not wanting to buy another sheet, which I don't "think" I will need much of, I looked around and found something that will work, but take a little extra work to make it usable.

Yes, it's time to create some plywood. Well, sort of.

I have extra 1/4" thick plywood, and plenty to make these sides, IF I glue a couple of pieces together.

That will make nearly 1/2" thick and I have no qualms about gluing them together. The glue will work just fine.

Drop some glue on one of the pieces.

Then, using a 2" wide foam brush, smooth it all around.
