I wanted to add a breakfast bar to our kitchen but had nowhere to place the garbage can. An Internet search eventually led me to the perfect solution. I used the trash receptacle idea from the anawhite site and integrated it into my breakfast bar. I added a cookbook shelf and incorporated shelves on the kitchen side to use wasted space where leg room was not impeded. I also built a hidden shelf (barely seen in the pics but sits just under the counter top) for cell phones, keys and wallets. The top is from Ikea and I cut to fit. The structure and base were all cut from a sheet of MDF and I added bead board for a bit of design.
Base cabinet: L63” X W24” x H39.5” (leg area 50.5” wide)
Countertop: L64.5” x W25.5” X 41”(height from ground to top of countertop)
Trash opening: 18” x 25.5” door and 12.5” depth (made to fit can)
