well here is the second to last entry in my pull out trash box series. this will cover the rest of the construction and the next entry will cover the finished project. so lets jump right in. i left off with the rest of the thing prefinished and showing the drawer in it. just milled up the drawer front. and finished and attached it. simple enough. the drawer bottom isn’t in yet and you might notice that the color is a bit different. thats because the gel poly isn’t on yet.
then i worked on the pull out thing for the trash can. glued together the rail and stile door with the panel prefinished. the picture though is of the dry fit. forgot to take a picture of the actual glue up.
then it was time to attach the bottom for the trash barrel to sit on. thought long and hard about how to do this. i chose a reverse dovetail to stick up to the downward pressure and i will add corner blocks later to help with shear strength. first i milled the pins into the board that the trash barrel will sit on. used my dovetail jig to make sure that the pins were straight square and everything. also had to repair a little chip out.
next i needed to cut the TAILS half blind into the door. first i marked it. freehanded it with a router to about 1/16” – 1/32” away from the line. then i used a few reference guided to make sure that everything would come out square and even and all that good stuff.
the i finished the rail and stile portion of the door. it was challenging but not really hard. i got the color pretty close
last i glued the bottom onto the door. haven’t added the corner blocks yet. going to install them on delivery day to make sure that they are not in the barrels way.
so thanks everyone for bearing with me. this was a little on the long side so i figured that i would get it out now before more things piled up. so thanks for your time, any comments, questions, advice, or whatever you want to say will be greatly appreciated. have a nice day!
