Cardboard Recycling Station
So, this is the first of the 'rudimentary' projects I mentioned in the Friday thread.
Sharon was commenting on the amount of cardboard that seems to pile up out by the garbage cans and suggested that we come up with a way of handling them so that the boxes just didn't wait around until I decided to break them down and bundle them up before I took them to Recycling.
I had made a couple of door holder jigs for when I was redoing all the doors in our hallway. Basically just a couple of cutouts in some plywood with a base that would hold the doors vertical. She thought I could enlarge that concept to make something I could use to store broken down boxes in until it was time to bundle them up and haul them off.
So this is what we came up with. I had some nasty old 2x4's laying around, so I planed them up and slapped it together.
Got to try it out and it works well. Makes much tighter and neater bundles than I ever made before.
