This was my first time working with hickory. It is one of my favorite woods to look at but this stuff is hard and easy to split. I broke off a few screws assembling this project. I learned to pre drill every pilot hole a little larger than I do in other woods and always wax that screw before driving it in. I made the back removable because I have 2 boys and I know they will miss the trash can and spill food inside and this will make for easy clean up. The back panel is tounge and groove with some horizontal braces as you can see in pictures 4 and 5. The finish is stained with 3 coats on poly. This was a long over due project for the kitchen and the wife was smiling from ear to ear.

I like it. Did you have a plan for it? My neighbor has been wanting one kinda like that.

It’s a really nice design for a trash can ‘cover up’ and you did a great job on it.
