DIY Recycling Bin

This was the January 2023 project. Although it is a DIY ecopoint, it is more attractive than the one I had before, a cardboard box with 3 bags.

It was made with a 60L plastic box, with a lid. I cut it 3 rectangular parts, each one for a plastic bag, for the waste, for the paper and another for the plastic. It doesn’t have one for glass, because here at home we don’t usually have glass bottles to recycle and when we do, they go directly to the recycling bin on the street.

Recycle Bin for Coffee Capsules

This was the March 2022, 3rd week project. Just the mold took about 45 minutes to cut the letters. I conclude if I painted the box inside black instead white, it would match the coffee machine colors. Otherwise, it became cool.

Was made with 3mm MDF sheets and 12mm x 12mm wooden strips.

Dog House

Dog House with Air Conditioner


This dog house is a good idea, but it wouldn’t work, since the peltier wouldn’t generate  neither hot or cold enought to to keep a better temperatura inside. Even it could, it would consume too much energy.

Will be made of wood (still choosing which wood…) and also will have an air conditioner that have the functions of cold and hot air, reguled with a thermostat.
