ShopNotes Podcast 075 — Scrap Management

By: Phil Huber
In which we discuss lumber storage options and solutions and the ideal workshop size.

Logan has been camping a lot recently and found a really good use for shop scraps — S'mores!

He and Phil talk about how to manage scrap wood and other lumber storage considerations: turning blanks, plywood, long boards, vertical storage, and more.

The Ultimate Lumber Rack

Phil has this lumber storage center that's more like a workshop hutch.

Lumber storage cart for plywood

Logan has a large cart that holds boards as well as plywood sheets.

One option is having a shop wood stove (or knowing someone who does). The conversation drifts into the optimal size space for the type of woodworking you enjoy — perhaps it's not as large as you think.

Phil mentioned several small-ish shops of woodworkers that he admires: Dave Fisher Jim Tolpin Peter Follansbee

Phil also talked about the Father's Day gifts he made for this year. For the most part, they were all made with hand tools and techniques.
