    Lumber Storage Re-org - Sense of Accomplishment

    This is a little bit of a re-hash of a couple recent threads and not really a tour but . . . .

    The revamped sheetgoods area, cutoff bins and small panel stash.

    The re-purposed 'cutoff bin version 1' now serving as a 'mid-sized panel' stash.

    And the same old 'itty-bitty stuff' stash that will someday draw my attention . . .

    There is now room in the vertical and horizontal lumber racks for the bulk stock and the shop is in shape for the next project. I tossed out a large trash barrel full of odd pieces of un-burnable stuff and anything else is destined for dad's to be used for kindling this winter.

    wow glenn, I just had to toss a ton of that itty bitty stuff, was tripping over the baskets, now I have alot of empty baskets.
    I decided if anything sits for over 2 years, and its under a foot, less than 2 inches wide, it has to go.

    Always good to get things cleaned up. Now you can find it for all of those special 'little' projects!

    Amen to that Allen. Most of what went in the dumper was stuff that seemed like it should be good for something, someday. If someday doesn't come along for a couple years and I can't give it away; out is goes

    I've got a couple of bins of that kind of stuff I need to get rid of. Tired of having it in the way.

    I have my son and 4 neighbors that have the backyard fire pits/woodburning stoves, so Ive been keeping them flush with kindling and bigger pieces all summer.
    It gets to the point that I get kind of nervous trying to work with such small pieces. Its one thing to cut out a small piece on the bandsaw, but if I start with a small piece, its tough for me to hold and feel comfortable.
    Ive been saving smaller pieces to make some toys, cutting boards, but when I looked the other day, I had strips to make 125 cutting boards, and enough toy cars to more than use up all the little wheels I purchased, so out it had to go.

    How do you spell OCD?

    No really Glenn, I'm envious. I have scraps all over the place, and though I made a bin somewhat like your #3, it is cluttered and overflowing. If I had a hat on, I'd take it off to you.
    If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.

    I spell it CDO.

    It's like OCD but, with the letters in the right alphabetical order
