I'm redoing my laundry room, and planning to put a butcher's block style counter top above the washer and dryer. The plan is for the counter to extend the full width of the room.
It has to be removable to get at the back of the appliances, so I am assuming this would mean putting a ledge on both walls and mounting the countertop to the top of it (maybe with bolts that can be removed). What kind of ledge would I need? 1x4's mounted to studs? Would I need support in the middle, for a 6' span of 1.5" thick counter?
Does the counter need to clear the top of the washer/dryer by a specific amount? The dryer is electric not gas.
