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?

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?

Sorry, I'll try to be more clear or make another BAD sketch.

I wanted to make a full length slot at the 38" side with a 3" wide slot.

 I'm thinking close the gap on the 18" up to the top of the straight right angle cut and then take a right angle on the leftover angle. It's that clear our do you need me to draw it?

I see about the casters being "recessed" within the frame. I'm still confused about how much of the unit will be "open". From the second drawing, I interpret that shelves will be accessible while the unit is in place under the stairs. In the first drawing the shelves look like they would be accessible when the unit is pulled out from under the stairs.

Am I correct with what I have added to your drawing, about removing this portion. Would that be on both "ends as well?
