In order to hold the weight of the washer and dryer, what type of wood is the pedestal made of?

I don't know the type of wood used for the pedestal.

The most important thing to keep in mind is the pedestal must be extremely rigid, stable and attached to the floor. Today's washers and dryers turn at very high rpms and the vibration can be a real issue.

I'm not sure the wood either. I went back and read through the plans and it didn't state anything specifically. I will email the homeowner and let you know what she used.

Here is what the homeowner said:

"for the 2x6 frames on the top an bottom just the regular wood that those come in, as well as the 2x4 posts that support the pedestals - just the standard wood that those are normally made for - nothing special.

For the wood that covers the frame, I used MDF, but any wood would be just fine as long as the base is built strong enough"

My husband and I made the same stand for our washer and dryer! Here is the plan we used:
