Well as anyone with cat/dogs in their house knows, the trash can battle with them is an ongoing problem. After the wife slipped and fell earlier this month, after a cat scattered the trash, I was informed that this would be my next project…now! We live in an older house with small kitchen, very little cupboard or counter space and by the stove is the only place where there is room for the trash can. So, two birds with one stone, trash storage and a bit of extra counter space where it is most needed. Very convenient place to put a cutting board.
So whats in my lumber pile. A 1” x 4” oak board I had been saving…glued up for the top. Some 1 1/2” Squares I had ripped out of 2”x4” cedar, some old cedar fencing slats, and various pieces of scrap wood. And a small drawer with a broken slide. Framework mortise and tenon and filled in with the cedar slats. Made wooden drawer slides for the drawer. Top is finished with tung oil, then whole thing finished with nothing but Howards feed and wax. Couple of drawer pulls i had laying around and now the boss is happy.
