I have TONS of scrap crate wood from dismantling shipping crates at work so I took some home for a future project. I completed this a few month ago since a need to have a heavy-ish cabinet arose. My dog with the help of the cat decided to treat the garbage as their personal buffet. I always knew they were planning something together!!

This is a fairly simple box design and best of all I only paid for the screws to hold it together! Looking back I wish I had taken pictures of the process before it was finished. I need to make a few changes to stream line it more. A longer chain and maybe sand it down a little more and presto! One dog/cat proof garbage can! I guess they will have to come up with a better plan next time.

Secondary bonus, I deal with craters in my area all the time and they source their wood locally and all is heat treated and freshly made to order. Can’t go wrong with that right?
