Old Dupont Crate

@bmoremelloyello found an old dupont crate that was originally used to ship gunpowder for cannons.  Sweet enough on its own, but we needed something to keep the pups out of the trash.  This is heavy enough that my 100 lb dog finally can’t knock over.  Add an old cabinet door and some old door hinges, and you get a new trash can cabinet.

Reclaimed wood, sanded, stained, oiled.  Drilling and anchoring into masonry isn’t as easy as it seems.  Always a work in progress.
