well here is the final post in my pull out trash box thing series. figure i’ll get right into it.
first i started by adding some 45 blocks to the place where the trash can sits. i had to notch it because that drilling would have been pretty hard without a drill press. i notched it a bit to much though. and i used brass screws. why? because they were the only ones that were short enough to not go through my surface. but to sound smart just in-case someone missed the bucket its good that it won’t rust :)
then put on the brass hinges
and the stop blocks for the door coming out. the trash can is about 12” long so i gave it 13” so you can have some room to get the trash can out and/or change the bag. just make sure that you orient the grain so the expansion and contraction doesn’t chance your setting. not that big of a deal in this situation but just good to remember.
last some pictures of the almost finished piece. have one more coat of gel poly to go. should have the finished project posted by the end of the week. you may notice that there are no handles. the costumer wants to pick out here own to make sure that they match her cabinets. they will be installed when i give it to her.
well i hope that everyone liked this series. i look forward to any comments, questions, suggestions, or whatever anyone else has to say. can’t wait until my next commissions!
