I have 4 separate wood areas strategically located.

1. Full length boards
2. cut offs bin for 2-5’ decent boards, some dowel stock, and some thin strips
3. a small box (box was a case of paper) for small cutoffs 6-18” and odd pieces that may prove useful.
4. Burn box – Bark edges, small cutoffs scrap pieces that were uses for test cuts, etc. I often dig into this for test cut pieces or backer boards. Despite there being some uses for this stuff at some point you need to let go. It becomes campfire wood.

The higher the retail cost of the wood, the less likely it is to make it to #4.
