We had a 1/4 plywood garbage can that my wife’s Grandfather made, that was in the house when we bought it. We used it for a few years and kept complaining about how we had to keep taking it out and it looked old and worn out. So, I got a few pallets from a buddy and started a new project of building what was supposed to be a simple project. As the build went on, I kept thinking to myself, this would look cool if I did this to it, and it kept going. Here is the end result. A little excessive, but we can now fit more garbage in our garbage cans lol.

Throwing out the trash will be a pleasure now. Nice job.
As they say, Garbage cans are just a bunch of trash.

This looks great! This will be a new addition to my project list! Is there anyway you could add pics of the inside and bottom? This would be a nice addition to any patio

Thanks for sharing
