I was asked to make this a while back. Finally finished it. A series of strange events and life made it so this took much longer than it was supposed to. This piece was fun to build but gave me many many challenges, more than I anticipated but in the end it turned out nice I think and the person who wanted it is happy…that’s all that counts really. All wood that you see from outside is solid poplar. the inside dividers and drawer boxes are Russian (Baltic) birch plywood (all finger jointed). The entire piece was painted except for the drawer boxes who got many coats of wipe on polyurethane

From what I can see in the pictures it fits the spot nicely.
My family would clutter the top with all sorts of crap.
Well done.

By far the best looking trash bin I have ever seen. Nice job. Lately there hasn’t been much of a clock about anything, so don’t beat yourself up about timelines.

Love it Pabs... Unfortunately with our local government’s indecision (Australia), I would need a few more compartments.

But, is it wife friendly to easily take out the rubbish?

Nice job Pabs. Although the finished product looks stunning I personally have a issue with hiding beautiful handcrafted work behind a coat of paint.

yes, I agree as well…but it’s what she wanted and paid for so that’s what she got.

That is a very nice cabinet. Well done.

Here in the states ( at least in Florida) we burn our recycling. Weird but it’s not valued. But we all sort and put it out to be collected.
