Someone at my work threw this square stainless steel cube away. Looks to have been part of a vent for a kitchen island. Was perfect size and height for under my short table to have a cut off bin close to the miter saw. Used some scraps and made a base-plate and upper plate, some old house door trim and finally some paint. Handle was from a box I re-purposed with bigger handle, the casters, well had to buy some small ones. Okay so cost was $11 in casters..LOL

Enjoy and be inspired, one man’s junk can be another man’s treasure.

Pretty fancy, allot of things that get thrown away are gems in the right hands.

Really nice job. Remember only high end scraps in that bin. No pine at all. LOL

Great idea. I love the casters on it because after it is filled, it is heavy to move around!!
