Mobile scrap bin

Roll this easy-to-make cutoff catcher wherever you need it.

This simple but handy scrap cart can roll all over the shop. The sides and bottom are made of 3/4" MDF, but plywood works just as well. The removable dividers are 1/4" tempered hardboard.

A 24"-long triangular block glued into each corner provides additional strength.

YA Joe. I made one with varying depth sections to accommodate different length scrap pieces. Very handy.

I agree with rpeterson342 about saving the wood. I keep my larger cuts on my sheet goods rack (either standing or laid behind the sheet goods), visible and accessible from the back of the rack. The smaller cuts go into buckets or boxes that are placed on my metal shelving units.

This scrap bin is alright, but I prefer the one from the old Shop Trio you published several years ago. It was made from a single sheet of 3/4" ply and had different sorting dividers for different length off cuts.

Personally, I use a 35 gallon waste container on wheels and save my wood for other projects. But if you must, this rollagout is about as simple as it gets.
