The Woodscrap Bin is complete in the shed. I finished it with two coats of feast watson clear statin varnish and wheeled it into the shed. So far so good and shed is a lot tidier for it. (There is extra-wood behind the bin in the photo.)

Bin 1 has offcuts of coastal black (including burls) and radiata pine.

Bin 2 has Tasmanian Mrytle (clear, figured & burls), silver ash, and silky oak. It also has some small pieces of huon pine, red gum, olive wood, ebony, purtle heart and blackwood.

Bin 3 is mostly Australian Red Cedar and some more blackbutt.

The back tray has some masonite, plywood, MDF and old templates from various projects.

Nice scrap bin. May I ask the dimensions and how many sheets of plywood it took?

So the business I went to acquire the ply couldn’t rip it for transport so my plan for ply ended.
What they did have was these re-dressed boards of radiata pine patchworked together.
Each was 1800×600x18mm. I bought four and cross cut one into 4. Easy.

Not sure if I wanted to see your bin, or what wood you had in it…...But the bin looks great.
