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.

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.
