Easy Cheap Trash Can Out of Old Water Jug

ok, after parents divorsing and mom moving out me and my brother went to reclaim the basement as a video game/exersise room. and we relised the trashcan down there my mom took to her apartment. as the redneck i am i figured id save money and rig one. basicaly take a water jug from a water cooler. cut of the top, sand down top, and put in a bag. easy but i thought it was a good idea and it looks cool down there

Step 1: Building

its very simple the only advise id really give you is dont use clear nags cuz you wont want to look at your garbage and also a tablesaw will cut the top of in like 5 seconds

    It makes for a nice trash can, but around here there is a $10 deposit on those bottles as they are refilable.
