a simple scrap wod bin that works very nice
i blatently ripped off the idea from 2 bins posted on
but mixed them together and this was what popped out of it
i have a sketchup that shows the basics if anyone wants it, altho im not very good at sketchup but it got me here so it must be good
comments,questions, all welcome

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

lol they were in the same spot, but in cardboard boxes, which didnt last very long as the corners would rip out

Greetings Bob…..Your scrap bin almost looks like my “shorts” bin…... lol. I made mine about 8 years ago.
They work good IF you don’t get them too full…

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!
