Christmas is coming! Believe it or not, its in December this year. I think I will be prepared this time ;)

A pair of trash cans for gifts. I was going for a slightly more rustic look. They will be well used (borderline abused) in both homes they are going to so I was not concerned too much with perfection. Function over fashion for these two. Solid 1×12 pine. Both cans came in slightly under $50 including a percentage of stain and hardware.

Nice looking. Should make one myself.

You should Monty! Not sure how they would do at your shows but everyone around here loves these.

Nice looking and I agree I’m just going to have to make something like these. I really don’t like the Stainless ones I have now.

Hey those look good. I wish I had room in the kitchen for something like that.

I think I am going to replace my Metal can with this
I like the idea of making the can the right size for the bags

Very nice job on those cans. They fit in with any decor and don’t look like a trash barrel!!

If you ever needed to give a speech, they could double as podiums.
