Clothes Hamper

It only took me doing the laundry twice to recognize there has to be a better way. So I decided to build this clothes hamper to solve the problem. There are two compartments inside the hamper. I measured our washer and designed the volume of each side to be the equivalent of one washer full of clothes. One side is for colors, the other side is for white clothes. (I got tired of sorting clothes when it was time to do the wash,—a waste of time) Then when one side or the other is full, the doors in the front swing open allowing easy access to empty the side you want to wash.

That’s a clever idea. I never thought about measuring the volume to be equivalent to one load for the washer. Very well thought out and a nice job on the build and finish.

I love the idea of having the volume equal to a load. Fantastic design
