Hi Guys, anyone really like fooling around on Sketch Up? I'd love to get some help coming up with a design for a scrap wood bin that would fit under my stairs but will have the most variety of cubbies and sizes of bins. Any takers?

Lew, I really need the  "best" most useful layout. Was thinking the bearing surfaces in 3/4" and all the dividers use 1/2" ply. Like this but in the triangle that the cart under the steps would be.

Thats the basic shape but want to break it up into as many different sized bins that make sense to store short cut offs like in the rectangle version I showed you.

Here's something-

The Sketchup Cutlist plugin I have doesn't work too well. I can see from the images that you may be able to rearrange the pieces to maybe get a little less waste. The PDF file is an image of the cutlist layout. I need to add dimensions to the picture if it meets with your approval. Do you have Sketchup or a Sketchup viewer so that your can see the drawing in 3D?

Lew, after thinking about the design and function I went into Paint and did a realllly rough drawing. Since the cart will live under the stairs thinking it would make more sense to have open access from the end facing us in the drawing. By ladder stepping the cubbies it would allow better sorting of sizes.

That's more like it buddy. Is it possible to add one full size slot from the end so I can store some small plywood sections?

Sure. Also, how do you want to address supporting the shelves? Full length "side" or just a front "support?
