Craftsman-Style Wastepaper Basket
With its open slat design and “rivets,” this wastepaper basket looks so great you won’t want to hide it under your desk.
A well-appointed office just isn't complete without a matching wastepaper basket. This Arts and Crafts-inspired project certainly serves the purpose well. At first glance, the cylindrical shape of this basket might give even the most seasoned woodworker pause. In reality, the framework is nothing more than two sets of concentric, hexagonal rings. But the best part about this project is that it can easily be completed in a couple of days.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
