    Mobil Cutting Board/Garbage Cabinet

    One of the guys at work wanted a mobil cutting board with a garbage can storage in side the cabinet. It is all white maple. The tops is strips of maple glued together and sealed with mineral oil/ bee's wax.

    I used Top Glide slides on the bottom pullout for the garbage cans. I can add weight under the cabinet at the back if the weight of the garbage tends to tip the cabinet. The cabinet is 26 x 24, the top is 28 x 26.

    The casters are fixed in the front and swivel in the back.

    great piece of work. I have a window in my kitchen with a countertop desk under it, and my wife has been asking me to build a rolling cabinet with a butcherblock top to double as a server type table and will fit under the window instead of the useless desk.

    Very nice work Rich. I like the idea of having the garbage cans easy access. Must think about that for our house. The top is great with the juice ring.
    cheers

    Great work, Rich. That's gonna get a lot of use. Our kitchen trash can is a pullout built into the lower cabinets, and it's been very handy. We really appreciate the overall cabinet design the previous owners did in our kitchen, and the built-in trash can is one of the best parts.

    Thanks, guys.

    He really likes it so far. I just need to come up with a way to keep the drawer slide on the garbage can pull out to keep from hitting the door if the door is not all the way open. I am thinking about a block of UHMW polyurethane a little thicker than the slide. I was also thinking about a strip of teflon or plastic to stick to the door.

    Woodworkers Hardware (and probably many others) sell rubber/plastic bumpers for that very task. They fit over the raw edge of the drawer slides, so that they bump the door first, and push it out of the way.

    Cheap, too - just a couple bucks a pair. I put them on all our kitchen cabinet slide-outs.

    Nice piece of work. In our kitchen, the door to the trash bins is attached directly to the slide-out frame (like a drawer front), not hinged to the cabinet. That avoids the issue you're having to address.
