    Trash can pull-out

    Finally got this installed tonight.


    It's got space below to put the trash bags and perhaps a few cleaning supplies. I originally wanted to put a tray in the top for the bags to go in, but may attach a shelf below and cut a hole in to reach through to pull a new one out of the box.


    Still need to get a shallow handle to mount on the front, but it's ready to use.

    What I did is to remove the door hinges, move the door handle to the top to mimic the top drawer pull, and screw the door to the trash can rollout. Now it pulls out as one.



    Details here.
    There's usually more than one way to do it...

    I like that idea Art, considered doing that, but the hinges are mortised into the stile and door. Would leave some big holes to fill if they were removed and its an outside corner.

    Looks too close for a handle, what about cutting a hand hold opening?

    Bob, I just wish I could get my shop as organized...going to take a while it looks like. Still trying to get some walls put up and looks like ceiling may be on hold until later this year, which is fine. I've got a few changes, such as new garage and entry doors I want to do and will really help with the layout inside. Might as well take the time and do it right.
