I made this tilt out trash can holder from some oak pallets I got from work and some scraps of oak ply I had lying around. The top and face frame are solid oak. The sides are plywood. I’m happy with how it turned out and the wife loves it and moved into it before I got pictures of it.

My family would hate this. They like to pile the garbage so high that it is past the top of the can until it is spilling over the sides and you can no longer tie the bag becasue it is so full. Your holder would scrape off the top layer as it closed causing it to spill onto the floor all around the container. On second thought, my family probably would like this.
Nice build…....well done.

Very nice project, this one is on my top “To Do” list, her’s not mine! Would you be able to provide the rough dimensions. I sketched one out in Sketchup but I think it is too high for the countertops.
