Ok, so first post——

I’ve just finished building what could (charitably) be called my third project. Have yet to finish it. The impetus for this is a need for somewhere to keep recycling (bottles, cans, etc) in our new house. We have entirely renovated our kitchen recently, so this is one of the final pieces of that project.

It’s pine from local HD. Held together with pocket holes—no fancy joinery here. Cutting was all done on my (new!) table saw, which was a god-send to making things easier. Design-wise, it’s pretty straightforward. 30 inches high, 20 wide, 26 deep. The center ‘hole’ is a full height drawer which will hold a recycling bin. The little shelves on the left curve and match the custom open shelves I put in our kitchen. More to come when it’s all done!

Great start on an addictive hobby. The nice thing about this hobby is that you get to have fun while making
your house look and work better for you and your family. The problem could be—-you have a new table saw
so a shop vac would help keep it from blowing sawdust around, but a dust collection system would work
better, to set up the dust collection system you need a couple of tools—keep the hobby under financial
control and have fun.
