Sort by size

When boards come into your shop -- no matter their origin -- take the time to sort them into rough sizes. I store boards longer than four feet vertically in one area, and shorter lumber finds its way to a shelf. If I'm building a small item, such as a keepsake box or clock, looking first through the "smalls" rack often saves my big boards for larger projects.

As I save more and more cutoffs I start running out of workshop space. I found that I use less than 10% of the scraps I save. I am much happier since I gave all my scraps to my wife to burn in the fireplace and SHE is too. Make sure it is really a keeper before you give up your space.
