Scrap Wood Projects - Everyone Has Them, So Do We 🙂
If you make things out of wood you pretty much expect some leftover scrap wood.
This is true for almost every woodworking project I’ve ever made as I always have a small amount of left over lumber or scrap wood from cuts that needed to be make.
I have a feeling that I’m not alone in this situation. Many times, those small pieces or scraps sit in the bottom of a wood pile for months or even years until I find a need for them.
Eventually, I always end up working on a project that will need a small piece of walnut, oak, pine, ply-wood, etc. and that’s when I am thankful I kept those small pieces of lumber.
However, those tiny scraps don’t always need to sit on the shelf until you need them for your next build.
So why not use up those scraps by making something different and new!
Think of all the fun and unique gift ideas you could come up with.
Here are a few scrap wood projects for you to sample.
