Here is my first post. We removed a built-in trash compactor which left a 15” opening in between the cabinets. We wanted to build a new cabinet that would house a concealed trash can. So we had a raised-panel door made (I did not have a router big enough at the time to do raised-panel doors) to match the other cabinets and I made a pull out drawer to hold a trash can. The trash can slides out on two drawer glides mounted under the trash drawer. The sliding drawer has a front that comes with in 6” of the top of cabinet, which we use as a handle to pull the trash can out. Fortuitously, the opening is big enough that we can put trash in it without pulling the drawer out. The project was built out of red oak and stained to match the rest of the cabinets.
