This was a fun project. My wife’s boss wanted a custom made trash can to go in his office. He was very specif about the size and the color had to match (or at least blend in) his current furniture.
After doing some research on the net I stumbled across http://mikefromwinton.com/ who I thought had some great ideas that I could use and while mine isn’t as nice as his I think I at least did his design a modest amount of justice. The main body is quarter saw white oak while the top is African mahogany. I stained it with a red mahogany and several top coats of poly. Also I’m pleased to introduce my new project model .She is a great Dane puppy ( currently 10 months old)
and her name is Snow. She tends to want to be involved in every aspect of my work and thus been able to impart a subtle impact to my work. She currently specializes in stealing scraps of wood off my shop floor and redistributing them through out the yard.
forgive the quality of the pictures.They were nearly 4 1/2 megs each and i had to compress them to fit on this page. Plus I stink at taking good pictures.
Thanks for looking.
