Introduction: Convenience

Picture of Convenience

Took the door off the cabinet and decided to turn it into a drawer

Step 1: Planning

Being a kind of work as you go kind of guy I made a rough model of the drawer sliding mechanism then refined it

Step 2: Action

Picture of Action

It was pretty easy. I took the door off, measured everything, made a reinforced frame for the drawer, mounted the drawer sliders, checked to make sure the drawer slid in and out, took the drawer out, mounted the door to the frame, added a support bracket and finally put the drawer back with trash can

Step 3: Finish Line

Finished project!!!

Step 4: Materials

The drawer itself is just a 1" x 2" frame with 1/8" plywood over the top and a 1" x 2" support rail for the door. For more secure cabinet door I added a 6" piece of 1/2" plywood to the front of the drawer frame which I mounted the cabinet door to. Additionally I mounted a support bracket on the side of the cabinet door to the side of the frame to add structural support from about half way up the cabinet door.
