Needed a scrap bin that was easy to roll around the shop and could be stowed under the extension on my cabinet saw.

And you think this will be big enough?? Wood workers (hoarders) never throw away wood.
Great job on this useful Bin … I like the idea of it being Two storage compartments …

Great idea. I am like GrumpyMike…have way to much scrap wood. I have an area 15’ long floor to ceiling build with shelves to hold all my lovelies….. but having a bin on wheels is a great idea

Scrap?, I think you mean small parts stock bin! Nice idea & great build, however like Grumpymike and Hawaiilad, and many others woodworkers, a much larger version of this would be required to handle my cutoffs.

Oldtool—You are spot on! The stuff in this bin is the ‘keeper’ stuff … the stuff that goes to the fire-pit is in 5-gallon pails and totes back in the storage room.

A great looking and practical build for the shop. A great idea to store scraps, just like a little helper on wheels.
