Save yourself $50+ and build your own scrap bin (garbage can) dolly from scrap plywood! We all have scrap plywood cluttering our shops and it’s time to find another use for it. I use an old garbage can to hold my scraps and i was tired of dragging it from tool to tool. So I spent a few bucks on some casters and slapped together this little dolly. It fits perfectly inside the flange on the bottom of the can. Now i can roll my scrap bin from table saw to miter saw to work bench without any hassle…now i just need to empty the can…

hey there m Travis Hold on , it looks like you have a few pieces that I may be able to use, anything over 6” – 8 ” wide and with a nice surface I’ll take. I do wood burnings so I’ll take what you’ll give.
