    Check out a company called Richelieu for cabinet door accessories. They may have a solution for this very problem.

    This project is garbage!
    Serious question, how deep does that dye actually penetrate? I know you said it didn't quite soak all the way in but was it even close? Asking for a friend.

    I love this bin idea, why hadn't I thought of it before. I've struggled to find a good sized replacement bin. I think with some alterations this idea will be perfect.

    To help the lid stay in line, maybe use some recessed magnets. This would help it line up but not interfere with it's ability to swing freely.

    Hi Dave. Long time, first time. Awesome. Love the build and the style / edit of the video. Nice job!

    Try putting magnets at the edge of the flap and sides of the cabinet to attract when closed to pull it straight.

    The first one looked like an old VHS tape version of the carpet, prior to the epoxy treatment. After the epoxy, it looked like an old VHS version of the carpet, playing back on an awful high gloss HP monitor. If you still have it, you should use it as a small pedal board. *also, this was amazing.

    Don't use hinges drill sides insert steel pins or screws.

    If you ever have problems with smoking the surfaces of your veneers while laser cutting, you might try putting masking tape over the surface. It'll keep the laser smoke to the edges of the veneer where you cut it.

    As soon as I saw the thumbnail, I said "The Shining!"

    I have better taste than having that in my house. And you can buy open out sprung hinges.

    To get the flap door to hang flat, try screwing a strip of wood to the back of the bottom edge to add weight to that side. Either that, or remount the piano hinge so that the hinge pin is in line with the center of the thickness of the flap door instead of the back edge. That is if there is enough room without having the hinge overhang the front of the flap door. Just a thought.

    Should have done two layers of carpet. That would have been worth saving that bit. Enjoyed it.

    I really like this. I think it makes a great shop trash bin. I have many lists of things I'd like to build. Some are "need"…. some are "want"…. some are "just because". I think this is going on the just because list. Thanks for sharing. Always love your videos!

    Could have used dowels in the side of the door and the sidewalls instead.

    No hinges needed and the pivot is in line with the gravitational force.

    Should hang strait as long as your bin is level

    The door probably won't stay flush because the floor isn't level. I'd put some shims under the front side and you should be good.

    For the swing doors, magnets in the sides of the door and the matching point in the sides.

    Turned out cool! I would expect nothing less in your shop. Really cool idea with using the carpet pattern from The Shining! Oh, and come play with us, David. Come play. 😉

    People always reference “classic diresta”, well this is “classic picciuto”! Nice work!

    Mount the flapper door on the sides with dowels or a metal rod instead of on the top/back. It’s front heavy when you’ve got it mounted on the back.

    They make spring loaded strip hinges for this application. We have done these in the past for food service companies.

    Loving it. Can imagine such a bin in my shop – just don't have the space for it. Thanks for sharing! Cheers!

    I think you need to change your pivot points. I can see it clearly in my head in which you could use L brackets to let you put pins in the sides of the flap rather than along the back, so that your pivot point is in the center of the piece. Then put a piece of wood between the L brackets to have a way to mount the assembly to the underside of the top panel the same way the piano hinge hinge is mounted. I dont know if that is a sufficent description but… I think it would work.

    I would have used a pin hinge. Pins at the top outside edges. Then it could swing freely in both directions, and gravity would keep it completely vertical.

    Hey Guys! My Name is Little Gadget Man and I’ve been trying to make it on the Youtube Scene. I have been trying to make quality content and it would mean the world to me if you dropped by my channel to give it a look. Anyways, thanks a lot and have an awesome day!

    Use a magnet yo hold the door. Look at a cat or dog flap magnets for the placement

    David awesome video, mixing art, design, and a trash bin, only you can do it :-).
    When did you change the background (I mean the wall where the garage door is) I looks great, and I cannot wait to see silly sentences on it like you did on this video.
    Ps: respect the ruler!
    Pps: I miss sand it the place like you are ;-(

    It would not fit in my home. A "trash" bin that huge would take at least 6 months to fill. I don't generate very much trash. I never buy canned goods except for Sardines. I pickle my own Herring in Mason Jars. I never buy processed foods. I guess some people would love a Giant Size Trash Bin but Seriously? Generating Trash is not very environmentally friendly. Wake Up!
