I’ve been thinking of building a cutoff bin for a long time and finally I came up with a version that offers more flexibility from what I saw up to now. Since my scrap pile is in constant evolution, I wanted to have a bin that would help organize the cutoffs effectively yet being big enough to hold as much wood as possible in a small space.
As shown on the attached photos, my bin has a fixed center divider and 6 optionnal dividers that I can add or remove in the blink of an eye (thanks to the 12 stopped dadoes).
The bin is made out of a one full sheet of 3/4″ plywood and the 4″ wide dividers are made from scrap wood. The added handle at each end are from 2X3 scraps.
