I made this to replace the ugly plastic trash can that we were using. It’s made of red oak. The door tilts out with the trash can on a set of hinges

What a great idea… hides the trash can and look good…well done.

I bet it really looks good standing upright. :-)

This is one of the great looking trash bin I have ever seen. Love the tilting design, very easy to get and place the garbage. Great work!

That looks great. Are there any build specs available?

Very nice, what are your overall dimensions for this project. My wife has been on me about building one. I would like to have it constructed for her birthday in March.

I’m at college right now and I don’t quite remember the dimensions off the top of my head, but I know that it fits about 1 inch below the counter top and is as wide as the depth of our cabinets. You could make one to any dimensions as long as you can find a plastic bin to fit and that has enough room to clear the face frame when it tilts out. Hope that helps!
