The best part about wood projects is they suck up the mess from the oil projects. Goal of this project was:

  • Build garbage storage so i don’t have to store smelly garbage in the garage.
  • Use up all my odd cuts of wood, half used tubes of caulking and my 4 and 5 year old cans of paint.
  • Clean up the oil mess from the Santa Fe Engine swap.
  • Do this as cheaply as possible … Scottish cheap 😀

The base is made from a small wood pallet. The 2×4’s came from what I had lying around and the 75% pile of bendy wood at Lowes. Plywood was also recycled from pallets and construction sites. Everything is painted including the underside of the pallet base … I should get atleast a couple years out of it.


In totally I spent about $25 in wood and deck screws, after what decided to call commercial roofers and made everything right. For example, Fusion Exteriors has a wide selection of roofing services for you.
