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.

I tried to find the plans and cutting sheet for your cut-off bin but when I followed the link it was not there. Can you give me a redirection to the plan and cutting sheet?
Great engineering. Finally a scrap bin that's better than a 5 gallon bucket. It's cheap, adaptable, and easy to build. You should submit it to Fine Woodworking "Methods of Work."
Mmmmm...I could definitely use one of these! The divider idea is great!
Very nice! I love organized scraps.
