How to Build a Clothes Hamper, Part 1: Frame Assembly

Hampers can become expensive when you have to replace them every year. Build your own wooden hamper that will last for years to come! The hamper being made has a box base that includes a front frame, back frame, two end frames and four legs. The frames are made up of two rails and two stiles with the bottom rail having a slight curve cut out. To begin building the frame, cut all rails and stiles to length and width. Cut an arch out of the bottom rail on each side using a jigsaw. Then, place pocket holes in the rails and stiles. Add glue and attach with pocket hole screws. Now you have 4 frames. Next, cut a rabbit on the inside of the frames for the panel attachments. (Remember: the inside of the frame is the side with the pocket holes) Cut the legs to width and length. Use pocket hole screws to attach the legs to the frame. Attach the smaller end frames with pocket hole screws. Make sure everything is square before moving on to Part 2.
