Tilt out bin

Submitted by naomi on Sun, 08/31/2014 - 07:48

I love this bin so much I built a large one and a small one. The small one is for the bathroom. The large on is for the kitchen. This is actually a rather easy build. I used mdf. I grooved the front panel on the large bin to add character. This was built from Ana White's Wood Tilt Out Trash or Recycling Cabinet Plan.

Can you give me a few more details about your grooved front panel...

did you just run the panel thru a table saw?

I don't actually own a table saw.

I just used my router and set the depth so that only part of the bit touched the mdf.

It was just a matter of testing it until I found the right depth.

Hope this helps. :)

I know its been awhile, however the one you have both normal trash and a recycle bin in.. is that the same dimensions as the ana-white build for a single? 

I assume the trash cans are just flipped side ways to hold 2 instead of 1?

looks great, thank you!
