David , the trash bin was a bought pattern from www.winfieldcollection.com.# cc26, about $9.00 plus shipping. I can give you basic dementions , top is 19 1/4 wide 12 1/2 deep , base is 18 1/4 w 12 3/4 d 31 3/4 high , the draw is 5 " h and 16 5/8 w , trim on the top is 3 1/2 " h. It is a full size pattern . And you could use the kreg jig , hope this works for you , JIM
David , thanks for the compliment on my storage bench. The boards were used to make a box on top of a skid , 7 1/4 " wide 40 " long . They have metal brackets on the corners and the stack them on top of each other to make the box as high as they need !! I just take them home and cut the brackets off and sq. up the ends and they never make it into the dumpster , the guys I used to work with save them for me !!! And as always you did a great job on the file cabinet , really like to see your projects. Thanks for sharing, JIM
Like your file cabinet. Could you tell me what kind of wood you use on it. I sure like the way the wood grain pops on the corners and such. It even gets me wanting to do something like that for me in my shop. Now that I can do it under roof in a dry place.
Thank you David, for you comment on my bench. It was made from what they call wrap a rounds, they stack on top of a skid to make a box . I really enjoy looking at your projects they are very good, have a great day , JIM

I know I'm crazy I've wanted to learn and build furniture for years I'm 47 time to get started .. Thanks in advance for any help/ plans BTW your dresser on profile pic is AWESOME!!
David--thank you for your kind offer. I have old tools from my folks and I don't even know what they are. I know one is a miter saw, but that's all. I don't have a Kreg jig, but I would like to buy one. Which one is the best for a beginner?
I just wanted to let you know I like your bedside tables. The oak really gives it the clean refine look that you see in those fine furniture places. keep with the quality craftsmanship and pride you get when you that you built that to last just like the old craftsmen of the past.
The Kreg slides are made to work with new drawers before putting on the drawer front. In my situation, I cannot remove the existing fronts which means when reversing the jig to hold the draw, it’s at an angle. Not sure what I should do to make them…Continue
