Lessons that I have learned fiberglassing:

1) Resin will eat all insulation, need to have cardboard, or at least painters tape to make a barrier.

2) Make sure there is enough hardener ( put my project months behind waiting for first layer to harden).

3) More layers make it stronger, not more resin.

4) Throwing a LOT of resin, with a LOT of hardener, means it is going to set up fast. You best have it where you want it.

I appreciate the effort but gotta ask why??? Seems like a lot of unecessary work and expense. Aslo looks like it adds a lot of weight to the can. Not criticizing just want to know what your goals and throught process is on the project.

I know this thread is pretty old but I'm thinking of building one of these for my wedding.

What about putting a larger piece of plywood or Masonite on the front to cover the trashcan?

Is the insulation necessary?

I built one of these for a party this coming weekend. I'll post a review of performance next week. I apologize for the blurry inside pic. It looked good enough on the iphone not to take another.
