This project was designed to match the other contemporary pieces I built for their home. I built the wastebasket as a gift. They are both constructed out of natural 4/4 cherry. Satin finish. Mitered up… clean lines… no visible hardware on the sink. I used aluminum to accent the rim of the wastebasket and made a knob from aluminum rod. One of the unseen features is the birch interior support and the steel, triangulated frame I welded for the interior of the base that keeps the piece from warping because it’s only three sided. You could pretty much drive a car over this sink base.
