A while back, as a means to store lumber scraps, I built a roll-around cart with bins about 2 ft. deep. I soon found, though, that short cutoffs — anything less than 10 in. or so — tended to get lost in the bottom of the cart. I spent way too much time pulling out the long pieces to see what was hiding in the bottom. My solution was to rebuild the cart with sloped bins. The bins vary in height, allowing me to store short cutoffs at the front of the cart and longer ones at the back. Now it’s a lot easier to spot a small, choice scrap of wood.
