« Part 5: Mirror Frame #5 Part 6 of Commisions series Part 7: pull out trash box #2 »

well here is my newest commission. it is for a pullout trash can thing. i have a couple of sketchup pictures of the box thing so here they are. the first one is of the box itself. the larger compartment is for the pullout trash can compartment, and the top is for a drawer that will be 4” deep. the whole thing will be made out of either oak of red oak. the costumer hasn’t decided yet.

then here is the drawer. simple enough. 1/2” poplar dovetailed to make up the drawer and an applied 1/2” oak front.

then is the pullout thing. it pivots on hinges that are mounted on the front and just has a stop crewed in the side of the case so the trash can doesn’t come out to far. the front is rail and stile with a raised panel in the middle but i tend on sketchup not to get to detailed i just used it to check proportions and to get an idea of how much lumber i will need.

so thats it for now. hoping to get the lumber either on friday or monday. i can get rough lumber too now that i have a planer and use a sled to mill it. it should be a fun project. have a nice day everyone!

Great job with Sketch Up.

Is this a stand alone? If so, the base may cause some problems on uneven floors. If not, why not use plywood?

All my “commissions” come from my wife, and they don’t pay all that-well! ;)

jtdyal, i considered using ply but it wouldn’t be really cost effective for such a small project. i would use a little more than a 4×4 sheet so i would have to use an 8×4 sheet so it wouldn’t be cost effective.

Looks like a good idea. You might want to put a back or back rails on it to make it resist racking.
