This project represents the deepest thoughts I’ve ever committed to garbage… It was a fun and pretty quick project overall. I’m happy it’s done so we can throw out our old kitchen trash can which was in dire need of replacing. There were a few firsts for me on this project; the butcher block top and hand cut dovetails. The dovetails came out functional but not too pretty. I definitely need some more practice with that… I only secured the drawer front with screws so I can replace the drawer with one made out of maple once I’ve got the dovetails down.
The top is a soft maple butcher block finished with mahogany gel stain, the rest is made out of pine and 1/4” plywood for the panels, and pre-made big box store bead board. The only thing I had to buy for this project was a few BF of maple for the top, the hinge and the handle. Everything else came out existing materials I’ve had laying around the shop for a while.
