    Scrap Bin

    Not much of a project as such, but a much-needed addition to the shop furniture. I built this scrap bin to hold all the odds and ends of stuff "too good to throw away" but still cluttering the place up.



    The bin takes 1˝ sheets of plywood to build, and of course, some wheels. Since this won't be moving a lot, I used cheapie wheels from Harbor Freight. If anyone is interested in building it, I've included a parts list and cutting diagrams here.

    Nice bin Jim!

    What I want though are some of those 'scraps' you got lurking there. Looks like some nice pieces hidden there!

    Nice addition though I'd have to call it a shorts bin, I save everything ...I usually save the word scrap for my projects

    Good looking bin Jim. I might just have to upgrade mine to something like that since the current one is packed full. I also need one for metal stock/cut-offs.

    Sure! You can have the plywood offcuts, and the OSB pieces...Oh, wait!...I bet you meant the curly maple, bloodwood, cherry, walnut, purpleheart, etc., didn't you?

    Now you know why I keep my scraps!

    Nice Jim. That is next for my redux. Can't be quite as big as your, but I need one, none the less.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.
