I looked for a long time trying to find a cabinet that had a potato bin in it. Due to the size of our kitchen it needed to be small. Since I could not find anything other than a simple potato bin I created my own.
It is 15wx14dx80h. I used maple plywood and maple trim. Finished with Varathane. There is a drawer at the bottom for onions. The potato bin has a lift up lid. The upper cabinet is for Bread and the #10 cans that have been taking up space on the counter. The back on the lower half is pegboard. The back on the upper half is 1/4 inch maple plywood.
For the potato bin lid I came up with a way to hold it open. I used a magnet from an old hard drive and attached it to a small piece of wood. On the lid I used a small piece of metal. When you open the lid the magnet holds the lid open.
Please give comments and suggestions
