Made with scrap pieces of poplar, put together with pocket holes and peg board. Perfect for organizing cutoffs.

I like it and yes it will help with organization. Using peg board(love/hate relationship) will be nice for over flow storage!

I used the pegboard because I had it in the shop doing nothing. This is far better than standing everything in a stack in the corner!

Your cart does seem to look better than my 2 cat litter buckets.

The real skill seems to be in keeping the scraps from taking you over….......................

redryder, you are absolutely right! In my case, things were getting piled up and it wasnt getting used because I couldnt see what I had.

That’s a whole lot better than having odd pieces of lumber all over the place. Nice work.

Yep….That’ll work…..I made a shorts and cut-off bin years ago, and it’s a good place to store unused wood till you’re ready for it…..

I have an old bookshelf that I put pieces shorter than 24” on and can organize them by wood species on the different shelves. I needed this cart to handle all the pieces I have from 3’-6’. I was tired of having them all stacked in with my full size lumber on the lumber rack. Too dangerous and unstable when you pull out one piece and a bunch falls onto the floor.
