Travis’s waste-management ingenuity showed up again at his miter saw station.

“I always had this huge pile of cutoff scraps on the table next to my miter saw. So when I rebuilt the miter saw table, I incorporated a drop hole right next to the saw.”

Directly below the hole is a recycling bin resting on a rollout shelf. When the bin fills up, it’s off to the burn pile.
