Our waste basket was old enough to drive, so I made four replacements using the same basic design, but added a drawer at the bottom.

The back is pegboard so air can flow and removeable for easy cleanup.

The pine has character so I did not over sand 240 was good enough.

Nice work! And a clever idea to have the bags right under the wastebasket!

Who’da thunk it??!!

Nice job. It turned out great. My wife has been wanting me to make her one of these so that may be one of my next projects. You did a good job and I like the drawer idea so I may just have to steal it from you when I make hers : )

That is a great looking trash can and I think I might just copy your design and details with the peg board in the back to let it breath. Great job.

A trash can with a drawer. Brilliant.

-- Life is about choices. You can spend a lot of money on furniture and have really nice furniture; Or you can spend a lot on tools and have even more expensive, crappy furniture. I made my choice.

One thing to keep in mind, I put a bead of silicone in the bottom seam to help keep any liquids away from the drawer area. If someone threw in a half empty pop, or ice it could make a mess in the drawer.

I also forgot to say that I made the drawer bottom from the pegboard although that isn’t really needed IMHO. All this to deal with accidental liquid leaks.
