I have a customer looking to build a dumb waiter. The upper opening will be from a bedroom closet and the lower in a utility room this will be for geting dirty clothing to the wash and clean clothing back up the the bedrooms. So, what I am asking if any of you have built a dumb waiter. I think we will just use a pully. Oh and it will have a shelve for a basket and a rod for hanging shirts. plans, picture or any helpful ideas PLEASE. Thanks you everyone for the help. One more thing this is something I will be building not purchasing.
