Base cabinet "accessories" are expected in today's custom kitchens and can
be quite pricey. One of the most requested is a trash or "recycle center"
pullout, which commercially generally start way north of $200.
With plywood leftovers, a couple of lidded trash containers of the
appropriate size available at many retail mall stores, a router with
template guides, and a pair of full extension over-travel drawer slides, and
you can custom make one for way less than retail.
This one is simple, and cost less than $50 and a couple hours of shop time
... but fancy can be as fancy desires:
Strictly FWIW ...
Margarita machine? Best margarita I ever had was at Maria's, in a
basement of a church in Webster NY. (She caters to the Mexican workers
in the orchards...the food is absolutely incredible..) She makes it
with 2/3 white/clear tequila and 1/3 Rose's Lime Cordial. Course salt
around the rim, room temperature. Presto. No machine.
I have two "real" Mexican family-run places nearby that to the same.
Awesome! Those drinks also go great with the fajita meat one of our
vendors brings to CT from El Paso.
"On the Border" and "Chi-Chi's" are only Mexican restaurants in the
sense that "Olive Garden" is an Italian joint. <G>
I ate at a Chi-Chi's in London, ONtario and, even though the food
wasn't even close to Maria's, it was palatable.
Then we thought, "cool, there's one 10 minutes from our house in Port
Huron MI," how convenient.
We ate there once, the food was what it was, and (because we forgot to
bring our US dollar wallet) we paid with Visa. A NEW Visa, never been
used before, and issued by a Port Huron bank. 2 Days later, somebody
bought $ 4000.00 worth of electronics in Washington State with our
number. That was an easy one for the cops. I guess minimum wage
doesn't attract the finest after all. Of course, not Chi-Chi's doing.
Ah yes, Maria. What a delightful woman. One day, after a tough day at
the office in Rochester NY, we decided that the four of us could use a
nice feed of Mexican food. We drove out to Webster, just to see Maria
walk out the door. She saw us and said: " I feed you, but you help in
the kitchen.". Her husband was still in there, and we had an absolute
blast for more than 2 hours. She made us help her clean up the place
too. LOL. (We took more than adequate care of the bill too.) One of
those 'it-doesn't-get-better-than-this' kinda events.
Maria's is a 5 1/2 hour burn from here, but I have been tempted.
Your talents are obvious Swingman, you are obviously a country boy. And
with a few wood scraps, some hinges, some cheap toliet seats, some plastic
containers and a couple of hours, you can make your very own two seater
You are soooo..... GREEN!! You are bringing recycling to a whole new
