Couldn’t take it anymore; had to get control of the wood stash finally. Went to Lowe’s to get the materials and got a nice surprise. 5/8” sheets of particle board underlayment was on clearance for $8.35. Fourteen 2×4x8’s, 4” casters and some screws and I was on my home. I saw a picture in one of the magazines yesterday at B&N which I used as the basis for this project. The back holds several full sheets of plywood and the top shelf is great for small pieces. Filling the bins made me happy just like the day I put up pegboard in my new shed; it was a great feeling to organize my mess(es).

It’s always nice to be able to work in the shop with clean and clear floor.
Great effort!

Nice storage bin. You can never have enough storage and organization in your shop.

Added to favorites. I have been looking for a good design for one of these… In particular sheet goods cutoffs are getting to be a real problem for me. This would solve that problem!

Well worth the effort. Looks good and you can find the scrap you need, instead of cutting it off a new full length board.
