I was asked to create a waste bin rollout to fit in some empty space underneath existing cabinetry. The client had previously tried making a cart of sort on casters that they could roll in or out but that didn’t work. The requirements were to use affordable materials, have it look like it belonged in this location, and match the color if possible. I was able to pretty much satisfy all three (the color is off by a shade or two). This build was challenging in that the space was very narrow, so much so that I could not create an actual cabinet. I basically created a face frame that I attached to the base and toe kick. To install it I had to tap cons to attach it to the floor in the back and the frame frame was attached to the existing cabinet on the right and the countertop with screws and a couple anchors into the wall on the left. The face frame and door is made of solid red oak and the internals are made of construction grade ply. I was able to pretty closely match the profiles on the rails/stiles as well as the raised panel insert. I used 22” full extension slides that are housed underneath the platform that the trash bin sits on, partly to keep it clean but mostly to allow more width in the narrow opening. The two cleats in the front are included to support the door as well as keep the bin from tipping over. All in all, I think this was a success and my client’s wife was very pleased with the outcome.
