    Scrap Bin Expansion - (Art Mulder Made Me Do It )

    Just kidding Art. Well it must be something to do with Spring Cleaning; I notice several folks are organizing or reorganizing. Coincidentally I was working on expanding my scrap bin tower at this time as well. This is just an expansion of this model that I have settled on.

    I inserted an in-between sized module in the existing stack making that at least one thing I did right; made this tower modular . I have started vertically dividing the cubbies as I find smaller pieces can get buried and never used up. The short, wide cubbies keep long, thin pieces easily accessible. The small pieces of sheet goods on top lean against a panel that is pocket-holed into a stud and the top of the stack. These are those troublesome pieces that are always good for something so I keep them around. Same footprint, more storage.

    The best part of this is "same footprint, more storage".
    That is worth something!

    looking Good, Glenn
    There's usually more than one way to do it... ........
