Simple Arts and Crafts wastebasket that holds a paper grocery bag. It could also be used to hold books and magazines. Fits in nicely with other Arts and Craft items.

Nice piece, and it seems a model of versatility too.

Nice work! I love the simplicity of the Arts and Crafts style.
Is it all m&t joinery, dowels, domino or beadlok?

The wood is quartersawn white oak with a Trans Tint brand medium brown dye, Zinsser seal coat, Rockler brand mission wipe on gel stain and then a lacquer finish.

Nice accent piece. Glad to see more people using the dye/stain combination to make QSWO grain really “pop”.Thanks for posting this.

Here are the dimensions. Posts 1 1/2 sq x 16 1/2 H, overall 14 3/4×12, slats 2 3/16W x 9H x 1/2D, (add 1 inch for 1/2” tennons), upper rail 2 15/16H x 11 3/4W x 3/4D (plus tennons about 3/4), lower rail 2H x 11 3/4×3/4 (plus tennons). You can trim the inside bottom with stops for the bottom or what works better is rabbiting it into the posts and bottom rails. It is really solid.

I was looking for something to put a plant in for the living room and most large flower pots are ugly… ‘cuz they aren’t wood. All I need to do is find the right size bucket. Hummm … I think a five gallon, maybe trim off the top edge a bit, Paint the outside of the bucket brown so the stark white doesn’t show thru so boldly.Thanks

Very nice piece,Great job. I’ll have to add it to my project list. I use a similar recipe ; honey amber dye,early American stain and natural Danish oil. A slight chamfer on the bottom of the legs will give it a little lift, just a suggestion.
