This is a wooden trash container designed to hold a 33 gallon plastic trash bag. You place a trash bag in the base and the top holds the bag open and the top also keeps the bag from “creeping” down as the bag gets heavier. To use it one lifts the lid, throws trash into the bag, and closes the lid. The base is made of 3/4” Baltic Birch Ply. The back piece is 1/8” to keep the whole thing from being too heavy. The top section is made of solid Soft Maple. I used a water based stain and 3 coats of polyurethane.
