I like the idea of a drop in plastic tub or bowl, or even mounted underneath.

If you decide to glue on the trim for your box, do as suggested and maybe use a small nail or two to hold the trim until the glue dries. I have told this story several times but here goes anyway…In 1988 I built a work bench in my gargage when we first moved into our house. A couple of years ago, I dismantled it and did a garage make-over for my woodworking habit. The drawers were 3/4 inch pine glued together with plain old Elmer’s glue and a couple of 4p finishing nails. I couldn’t get them apart. I had the beat them apart with a shop hammer. Some of the wood separated at the glue joints, but the glue held fast!

Good luck. Post some pics of your project.
