In this article we will tell you how to make a wash basin for giving your own hands, consider various options, and also show photos and videos of instructions for creating a street wash basin.
The washbasin should be:
If your dacha does not have a washstand then please read this article carefully. In fact, the methods of manufacturing a homemade washstand is more than enough.
A washbasin from a plastic bottle
The easiest, budget option. This can be a 1.5-liter bottle or a 5-liter eggplant. First you need to cut the bottom. Then, using a clamp or aluminum wire, fasten on some vertical plane. The role of the dispenser in this case will be played by the cap itself. We collect some water into the container, and it will flow in a thin stream when we slightly open the lid. It turned out the easiest - and nowhere is easier - mounted washbasin. That's all the wisdom of this washstand.
Wash basin with tap
This stationary construction is more complex therefore, for its manufacture you will need to have at least basic knowledge of plumbing. It will be good if in your household there happens to be a small 6-liter plastic (made of soft plastic) can with a wide neck or any other suitable container. This time it is necessary to spend money on the purchase of accessories for the future washstand. Required:
Work will not require professional skills. It's simple: a hole is drilled in the bottom of the can under the sgon diameter (the lower the better). We insert the thread into the hole by the side where there are more threads, we put the washers on both sides, and then the gaskets and clamp them with nuts on both sides too. After that, we wind the tap, pre-wound a linen underwrap, which is smeared with a special impregnation, in a clockwise direction and everything is ready, the wash basin is ready.
It will only be necessary to select for it a suitable cabinet or a rack pre-fastened from four wooden bars. Fixing the can on such a structure, pour water. And now you have a more civilized version for a larger volume of liquid in the dacha washstand and, moreover, with a faucet for water supply.
In this simple version of the washstand, you can do without the boom. For example, take a 10-liter galvanized bucket. We will need:
The work is simple: we drill a diameter at the bottom of the bucket using the nozzle under the brass faucet. We put a gasket on it and insert it into the finished hole. On the other hand, we also insert the gasket and clamp it with a nut. The top of the sink is ready.
It would be useful to say that the street sink should be equipped with a drain. This may be a conventional tank, where the used water is collected or the finished sink, with a corrugated tube inserted in the drain (from three meters). With the help of such a tube, water can simply be drained into the garden and absorbed into the ground. Some people do not equip drains at all, and water flows directly to the ground. And so that under the feet did not form dirty slurry, (two buckets are enough). As they say, cheap and cheerful.
Washbasins for a room
If we are talking about homemade washstands on the street, it is definitely worth mentioning about the washbasins in the room. The internal washstand is much more complex in design than its street counterparts. It is clear that here you need to take care not only of its functionality, but also of beauty. In other words, it should harmoniously fit into the general surroundings of the dacha simple life. Most likely, this will be the most common type of internal washbasins - "moidodyr". How to make this washstand of wood? We will need boards of 25 * 150 mm.
In vertical blanks, it is necessary to pre-cut recesses (depth 20 mm, width 8 mm). This can be done using a manual router. In horizontal blanks with a conventional hacksaw, thorns are cut out accordingly.
The hacksaw should be sufficiently sharp and with fine teeth. Cloth length: 25-30 cm.
The size of the future washbasin is largely determined by the dimensions of the water tank, which we plan to use for it. It is also important for us to know for sure and the size of the shell, which we will mount on the cabinet. After everything is cut to size and the technological grooves are cut along with the spikes, the wash basin is assembled like a designer.However, it will be better to fasten the junction points with wood screws.
The upper (or lateral) part of the structure has a niche where we should insert the finished water tank.
A 20-liter galvanized tank (width: 490 mm, height: 360 mm, thickness: 140 mm)
is better suited for such a washbasin. Assembly of the moydodyr
The bottom of the washstand cabinet is reinforced with laths (20 * 45 mm) at the same distance from each other. The back wall of the upper part of the "moidodyr" is covered with plywood - from 3 mm and fastened with screws. Of course, it is better for such a thing to use moisture-proof plywood in case the water tank leaks, but if there is none, it is not scary.
As for the cabinet door, everything is simple: we glue a square of 3 mm plywood with the aid of PVA glue to the frame of four interconnected small wooden planks on its back side. It remains to embed the lock with a curly handle. All wooden frame "moidodyra" assembled. Now the final touch is polishing, painting the product, and then installing the sink. It will turn out very nice.
