This is a project that was completed in March 2010. It is a recycle bin. We saw one while on vacation and a friend really wanted one. These are friends that are very generous to our family and I wanted to return the generosity by building one.
I snapped some photo’s of the original (see below) and starting building when I got back from vacation. The construction was really neat and different. I would assume that it would be framed up and then covered with the plywood. This was built like using 2×4’s to reinforce the plywood skin, then those are fasten together. The way I figured and cut it out required only one sheet of plywood.
The original didn’t have a finish on it. My version I added a clear coat so that the wood wouldn’t absorbe things spilled on it.
The plates I had custom made at a local sign shop.
Materials Used: 2×4’s, Fir 3/8” plywood, 1×4 pine, 4 trash cans
Color: Natural Clear Coat
Finsh: Pre-Catalyzed Lacquer
Here is the only raw video of the build. I fogot to push record on the main part of the build:
