Inspired by this template for a papercraft 8-bit trash can, Instructables member BrittLiv decided to make a functional version out of plywood. It seems roomy enough that a whole computer could be dumped inside.
Since it’s made out of wood, the pixel trash can is quite heavy – BrittLiv reckons it weighs about 7 to 9 lbs. Of course you’re free to use other materials if you like. But I think the most important aspect of this project is the paint job, and I think BrittLiv pulled it off.
