Upgrade to a Trash Drawer
Installed in an existing cabinet, it's simple and sturdy, and it hides disposables only a slide away
Cabinetmaker Rex Alexander has discovered that he can spend lots of time fussing over the details to create a beautiful kitchen, but in the end, he gets the most praise for the pullout trash drawers he builds. A trash drawer can be designed as part of a new kitchen, but it’s also an easy upgrade for an existing cabinet space, preferably one near the sink. The materials for this project are easy to find: drawer slides (rated for 100 lb.), birch plywood, medium-density fiberboard (MDF), veneer tape, and some screws.
