The tilt out trash bin was actually a project we made for a family member that was based on a Pinterest pin that was sent to us. Rather than make it identical to what was in the pin, we decided to put our own little spin on it and try some new things. It's a fun, somewhat simple and very practical and useful project.
What we used:
Make sure you check out the video, it shows a bit more of each step than the images do. Please enjoy and if you make it or something like it, we'd love to see it. Share it with us on here or on Facebook, Google+, etc.
The sides were made up of a glued-up panel. This consisted of a section of 1x12 and a 2" strip from the the 1x6. The length of these will depend on the size of your trashcan. A good idea here would be to add about 3 inches to that length you get to account for the tilt of the door.
Two panels were glued up for this and another was glued up off-camera that will eventually serve as the bottom of the inner compartment that the can sits on.
After the glue had dried, we cleaned it up with a chisel and then ripped down the panel to the final width we wanted.
