Simple K'nex Trash Can

About: Hi, I am Daredevil499, love classic cars and muscle cars, I can rebuild a small engine. I am home schooled. I am also the oldest of 9 kids. I really want to race cars and be a NASCAR driver someday, and more...

Hello, the other day I was thinking, " I wish I had a trash can in my room", I didn't want to buy one so I built one with K'nex! Enjoy!

    Yes, I've had many great ideas but couldn't post because I had trouble with site. But I works now so I'm back full time. I think I'll have three instructables by the end of the week.
