Dogzilla proof garbage can

I love our new puppy Dogzilla Windsor but he gets in to everything including the garbage.  He's just tall enough and smart enough to figure out how to move the cover of the garbage can and stick his head inside.  URGH!!!!!!!!!!

I told my husband he was going to have to come up with a solution to this issue before I freaked out again.  Believe it or not last Wednesday it was 62 degrees here and he was able to work in the garage (the next morning it dropped to 15 degrees).  I could hear the drill and the nail gun going to town.  After 2 hours I couldn't stand the suspense any longer and I had to peak. 
a little leftover plywood and some oak trim later

The lid is on a hinge

What do you think of my work boots?

Now here is the DOGZILLA PROOF garbage can.

Stay tuned for the finished product. I get to paint and stain it.

Project #4 from scraps.
Total cost 4.99.  All the wood was leftover from previous projects.  All we purchased was the hinge.
