As a fairly new framer, I'm still coming to terms with the (to me at least) massive amounts of scrap generated in this industry. At the moment, I'm thinking specifically of moulding cut-offs. Obviously, when I have long lengths, like 6' or more, I save them in a rack. But I'm conflicted about what to do with shorter stuff and I'm curious how other people deal with it. What's your policy for what gets saved and what gets tossed? Do you keep a 4' piece in hopes of a small frame? Do you save the 30" pieces to make tiny frames for friends? Do you turn it all into 8x10 readymades? I know there will be at least as many answers as Grumblers, and probably a lot of "depends on the moulding" type answers as well, but I'd love to hear people's thoughts who've been doing this longer. What are realistic keep/toss rules of thumb so I don't find myself buried in cut-offs within the year? How do you keep track of what you have so you don't end up ordering a full stick when you had 6' in the back of your rack? Any thoughts along these lines would be very welcome. Thanks Grumblers!
