How to Build a Dumbwaiter?


To build a dumbwaiter, you need to have a pine plank, shelving unit, and manila sash cord. The first step is for you to plan the route of your dumbwaiter and then build a case for the dumbwaiter. Make a U-shape main frame out of the shelving unit. At the base of this frame, fasten a heavy swiveling pulley to the floor while at its top, attach two fixed pulleys to the rear right into a joist. Lastly, mount four springs to the bottom of the frame below the pulleys to sustain the dumbwaiter in position.
