Step 7: Making the Top

The original top of this washing machine was a bit too broken to use. It was made from plastic laminated onto chipboard which had got damp and surrendered to the resultant softening effect.

Luckily I had a scrap of nice ply I recently fished from a skip. I don't know what kind it is but it seems like some darker wood and is over 1" thick, so will do nicely. None of the edges are straight, looking to have been cut with a jigsaw to fit round a wiggly wall. The circular saw with a guide works wonders to square up this kind of thing, that would be a bit of a handful to push through the tablesaw.
