Trash Island

One man's trash is another man's treasure. Does that work for islands?

The drawer will get a full overlay door front to match the rest of the kitchen. The butcher block still needs to get siliconed in place. It's heavy enough to not slid around at the moment, but every once in a while someone bumps it and it moves an inch and scares us.

It was a busy weekend, but this little project took me only a couple of hours. Most of that time I spent staring at the drawer parts I'd cut to size, trying to visualize. The can is temporary, so the second interior frame cradling the lip will be relaced with a full sheet of waterproof something.

The hardware: Accuride full extension self closing. Good for, oh, 100 pounds or so. That's a lot of treasure.
