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?

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
