Two weeks is up tomorrow. Picking her up at the airport at 7PM.

The house is a mess.
There are no groceries (I do the grocery shopping but too lazy this week).
The dogs have lost weight.
Dishwasher is full of clean and dirty dishes.
There's an eerie looking discoloration in the carpet in the living room.
I've forbidden the kids from changing clothes the last two weeks.

...but....

All my hard work that detracted me from these chores was in preparation for her parents 50th anniversary..


yep....I'm a saint. ;D

Looks great BM, it's SURE to be a hit!

Love the removable drip tray....you might find that, especially outdoors, the tray may be more hassle than it's worth...

The only thing I have to say that I would do differently, is that as great as the stained board looks, I really liked the way the taps followed the curve of the front of the bin when they were fitted directly to the plastic. The board just doesn't follow the curve and sticks out quite a bit on both ends. I would have maybe used another material that I could curve around the bin and get back that nice curved effect on the taps. I am thinking a piece of checkerplate/stainless/aluminum etc that would roll rigth around it. Another option might be a piece or possibly a double thickness of lamanite benchtop, like Formica. Then you could use any pattern you like.

Last thing I can see that might be a problem is the spigot. I hope no one steps on it, or kicks it accidently. Not a problem until you piece the liner I guess. rather than poking holes in the bag and using the spigot, you could just tip it on its side, or use an autosiphon to empty it.

Not criticising in any way mate, it's AWESOME!, just doing what I do.. and making some observations.

So what's going to be pouring from the three taps?

I must dissent.

I love the clash of the rich, finished wood and stainless faucets with the cheap, green, ugly plastic. Though I don't know him personally, this work of art just screams BierMuncher, based on the little I know of him from his posts.

I love it.

For some reason, I half expect Oscar the Grouch to pop out and start singing, "I Love Trash!"

You could have the exact same stained timber look with a laminate like formica, it's just that it would curve with teh bin, and keep the taps curving in the same arc....

Or not

I'll give you that... it would be more aesthetically pleasing to match the curves.

But for me, that would be one step too far and would call into question the whole concept. If he took it that far to match the curves, then why would he use an ugly green garbage bin to begin with?

Not matching the curves negates the whole existential question, thus validating the choice of media in the first place.

I got a B.S. in Art BS in college.

Or not.
