Good idea! So, where did you put the scaps from building your scrap bin before it was build? :-)

It’ll take 3 minutes and it will overflow..might need a bigger secoond one!!! My shop is 24×36 and it’s getting smaller & smaller every day…seems to have a stange phenomenon to do with woodworking!

I thought about making one a while back. But for now, mine is a Rubbermaid tub…either way, space is an issue. I like that yours is compartmental.

Great way to combine the best of everyone’s plans! I’d love to have the sketchup!
