Wooden Recycling Bin

We have been in need of a box for our recycling drawer. I took inspiration from the paper bags that we have been using and made a box from very thin plywood. The box has a serrated top edge and clean details like a paper bag. The corners are mitered and held together with biscuits, and the bottom is set in a rabbet.

  1. Great Project !!
    So I get it… the glue is plenty strong to hold that weight. But it always rubs me the wrong way when the one part of the piece that ACTUALLY carries weight is just glued on. I want some structure in the system to distribute that weight somewhere. Just from an engineering point of view, it irks me.
    But that's my problem, not yours. 🙂

  2. Hi Frank. I loved your handle riding triumph right at the end. Nice! This was another cool project. I don't recall seeing your bandsaw from the perspective at 2m.35s ever before? Did not imagine it was that colour. Thanks for makin'.

  3. Hi,
    have you thought about making a paper bag out of plywood, which actually looks like a paper bag? I mean an actual replica. I have a porcelain vase at home which is a copy of a squeezed plastic cup. I like the idea that it would be trash if the material was different, but this way it is art. Same with the "plywood paper bag". Don't get me wrong, I think the project what you've done here works way better with the cupboard. It is an idea for an other project. Keep up the good work and thanks for everything.

  4. Frank…I wanted to mention a little trick about pressing and holding two pieces together to let the glue set without slipping. I reciently learned that if you sprinkle table salt on the glue before placing the two pieces together, after which you can clamp without movement of the pieces. The salt does not damage the wood. Kind of odd, but I guess it works. Just a thought.

  5. You can try another method for the hold down box. Apply one layer 1/2"mdf on top. Then route the top layer off to remove the factory smooth surface — leaving a porous surface. — maybe do the same on both faces. The mdf will block some of the air from the holes not being used , so you don't waste vacuum and also will create a suction power under any flat surface you put on top. You can test that with your palm and feel how if you press down on it it creates the suction.
    You might have to reduce the height of the hold down box with so many layers 🙂

  6. Might be too late since the suction box is already built, but you could put close-able baffles inside the box. effectively giving you the ability to cut off the air flow to certain sections of the box.

  7. Frank, I have blocked the holes the way you have here, with plastic sheeting, but used clear packing tape to seal between the work piece and the plastic sheet, to good effect. A little more insurance if you need walk away. I hope this is helpful.

  8. With regards to blocking the hold-down table holes, you can also just use 4 separate sheets of plastic and just line them up around the work piece like an iris and roll+masking tape the overhang to the side of the body of the hold-down box.

    If you want to over engineer it a bit, you can have rolls of plastic attached to the sides, similar to an old projector screen, and just pull it out to the edges of the work piece. Then, when you're done it'll be able to reel itself back in.

  9. You could probably use something like foamcore or posterboard to do the job of the plastic. Just cut it into 6-inch-wide strips maybe half the length of the table. Then you can easily store them and place them around the piece you're trying to hold down when necessary

  10. Просто отлично!! Наслаждение смотреть за Вашей работой! Прежде всего манера её исполнения! Спокойно и уверенно. С хорошими мыслями. Про эти вещи можно с уверенностью сказать "сделано с душой"!!! Спасибо

  11. Out of curiosity, what's the most "exotic" or just down right strange wood you've turned? I've just begun the journey that wood turning is and have already been trying some exotics, mostly blood wood or purple heart

  12. Hi Frank. Not only I enjoy your videos tremendously, but my 7-yo boy also is your biggest fan. He really likes your stop-motion videos, like self assembling table saw or Carver's mallet. He also loves seeing videos that your kids are in. Thank you for wonderful videos.

  13. Being a fellow resident of Portland, I don't doubt that you have plenty of paper bags and they might be a great option for blocking the holes in the vacuum hold-down table. Sure, they're slightly porous, but the recycle-ability is the attractive part to me.

  14. My immediate reaction to the "plastic sheet" method of blocking off holes on the vac table is, "Why not assemble a series of flat wooden 'panels' that you can quickly and easily lay out around your work piece?" By creating a series of odd shapes (long rectangles, short triangles, etc.) you could approximate almost any desired 'negative space' needed in future, and there'd be no need for taping down (or throwing away) plastic sheeting!

  15. Hey so what level of woodworking do i need to be to learn the "Duplicate" ability? You know the one where you're at two places at once? It's level 99, right?

  16. with the plastic sheet you just punch through the holes you need to be open. to re use you close the holes with tape. the sheet just allows you start afresh when you need with a new sheet.

  17. On professional used vakuum holding tables they use pre-cut stripes of rubber that can be layered to fit arroud pretty much any form… Just cut your plastik into rectangels an store it for the future… if its to big it can overlap on the side of the table… too small pieces can be stacked with others…
    But i like the marbles-Idea too 🙂

    Edit: Or just redesign the whole Table for an even simpler Method:

  18. Well, if you don't like the plastic, you could try using bags made from corn starch. The ones we have in germany are surprisingly sturdy and you can compost them.

  19. Hi Frank, I was just introduced to your videos a couple days ago. It amazes me how anyone is able to create their own distinct style in today's age of thousands of other "maker" videos, but you certainly have done it in spades. Kudos, look forward to watching all your other projects.

  20. Dont worry mr "simpleton" donald trump told me that global warming is a hoax made up by the chinese. And now he'll be the most powerful man on earth. Good job america. Also he will ban internet porn.
