Can anyone tell me how I can get a copy of the instructions to build the DIY bin storage unit. I've searched and cannot fine one to equal Better Homes & Gardens one from 3/8/2012 magazine.
Welcome to Workshop. With a name like yours, I'm sure you will fit right in! We have loads of like-minded community members who I'm sure you will enjoy swapping advice and projects with.
Bunnings has instructions for building a D.I.Y. bin storage unit on their website. I have also attached a video below. I hope that helps, but if you let us know a little more about the design, other community members might be able to offer further advice.
Thanks again for joining us.
Welcome to Workshop. It's great that you could join us and we look forward to seeing you complete this project.
The full step-by-step instructions for the Bunnings version can be found here - https://www.bunnings.com.au/diy-advice/outdoor/structures/how-to-make-a-diy-bin-storage-unit
You'll notice that the top features 2079mm x 9 merbau decking boards so that's the unit's width. It can house three standard-sized bins.
Not sure why they said you need a pro for fitting struts @Maryam123. Just pick up the right size of these from Bunnings and fit them - https://www.bunnings.com.au/goliath-505mm-450n-gas-strut_p4230180
With a bit of reading/planning you shouldn't find it too hard to DIY. The below formula show help you get there.
Just to add to what @ProjectPete said found this video that shows how to fit them, first part has been covered by Pete.
