There's no question that recycling is here to stay, and those piles of empty cans take up a lot of space unless you flatten them down. Store-bought can crushers aren't expensive, but most are as flimsy as they are cheap. Our version is both economical and fun to make. It's also rugged enough to last for years of hard use.

Great plan! Big hit at our family beach house. Upgraded to mesquite-its the best looking can crusher out there. Used all stainless bolts etc so it's also the most expensive. Fun to build.

Solid Crusher
Not having all the proper tools (router and drill press), it took me a while to complete and I had to fudge some things. In the end, it works very well. Two things of note: First, the plans are inaccurate regarding quantity of the cap nuts. You need 8, not 6. And from an upgrade I read in a forum elsewhere on the internet, I used 10 inch cap screws instead of 8 inches, so I could fit the larger 16 ounce cans in the crusher. I just moved the holes for the upper jaw 2 inches closer to the handle.

Turned out great with a few adjustments
The material list was short a few pieces,and we had to adjust the holes in the arms further apart than it said because a regular 12 oz can wouldn’t fit in it. Also the directions would be better if they were in step by step form, my 10 year old had trouble understanding it the way it was written. Cool idea, but I should have saved my 8 bucks and made it from the picture.
