Built this oak waste basket for my wife’s birthday.
Didn’t do any trigonometry to make it – just laid the rails and posts on my worktable and estimated the angles. I started with the rails a little longer than I wanted, and cut them shorter and shorter until I got the angle right.
Posts are 3/4, rails are 2/4, and slats are 1/4 ply that I had left over from a previous project.
Antique oil for finish. It needs another coat but that will have to wait until I get back to the shop…
