My son asked for a matching cabinet for the kitchen with a slide out waste can to hold the garbage. Went over took some measurements and a couple pictures and also stole the waste can and went home to start building.
His wife calls me and ask if I could also add a drawer for extra storage and I said we’ll see what we can do. The only problem was their waste can was sort of tall for a cabinet style slide out but I made it work. Made out of Poplar, Pine, and particle board to keep it cheap since it was going to be painted.
Turned out great and should match the kitchen. Will be bringing it over there tomorrow. Hope they like it. I guess they get the family discount.

Thanks Tony, I’ll find out tomorrow. Does anyone know why my pictures are turning sideways when I post them? Anyway to correct it?

Very nice Dave. Very practical. The Wood on the Top is very appealing too. Does the Cabinet stand alone near the kitchen bench and match the bench? A very necessary item to have in the kitchen. Your Son and his Wife will be very pleased.
Regards,

Cliff.

Hi Cliff, thanks. The wood on top will match their kitchen table. It will stand alone in the corner away from their island cabinet.

Ok I see,
You may be able to rotate the photos within the camera. Sometimes it depends on how you hold your camera. Try holding it a different way to see what you get. I know if I hold my iPhone vertically to take a photo my photos come out like yours “sideways” Hope this helps.

All pictures are taken horizontally. I also get this saying after adding two pictures that the files will only hold 5mb , whatever that means. I guess I’ll have to ask this question on another post.

Nice cabinet. What is the top made out of?

Dave.
Most of the new cameras will show the pictures upright on your computer, no matter how you held the camera to take the shot.

Try this. Open a pic on your computer. Then “right-click” on it and a small menu will open. Put your mouse over “Open with” and another small menu will open. Slide your mouse to choose “paint” and click on that. When the pic opens in paint see if it is right side up, or sideways. If it’s sideways look at the boxes at the top. There should be one that says “rotate”. Click on that and you can see the choices. Usually it’s “rotate 90 degrees right” (or left depending on the orientation).

If the pic is correctly upright, just click your mouse ONE TIME anywhere on the pic. You are actually putting a tiny “dot” on that pic and the computer thinks you have “changed” something.

Now mouse up to the top right corner and click on the red “X” to close that screen. It will ask if you want to save, say Yes. You will be brought back to your original pic and you will be able to post it here on LJs upright correctly.

Regarding the message about the 5mb size. When you have the pic open in paint, look right next to that “rotate” button and you should see one that says “Resize” Click on that and you can change the pixel size from 100% to 75%. Again close the page and say yes to save.

By the way, you can do BOTH of these (resize AND rotate) at the same time.

It sounds like a lot of steps, but once you do it a few times, it becomes 2nd nature.
