Wastebasket | Woodworking Project | Woodsmith Plans


Add a touch of class to your home office by making this wooden wastebasket.

You'll learn about tapered frames and panels, how to cut parallel and opposite angles, and how to re-saw and book-match. More reasons to love this project: you'll learn a simple mortise-and-tenon technique, and a fast way to cut miters on a jointer. This is a small project that doesn't use a lot of wood (and no hardware!) but it is a little challenging. Recommended for those with intermediate or advanced woodworking skills.
