I’ve got some small pieces of wood that are left over from making blanks to carve gunstocks. They are too nice to burn and a little too small for bigger projects.
The walnut strip is 11 3/4” in length, 3 5/8” tall and 1 7/8” wide. It could be used for a tea candle holder, or a clock face could be inletted into the face, or it could be cut into 1/4” thick sections to carve pistol grips. If anyone has other ideas, I’m open to suggestions.
The end grain walnut log section is 12” in diameter and 1 1/2” thick. The log it was cut from was only 2’ long, so it wasn’t big enough to do much with. I cut a few 2” sections to see if they would dry without cracking and I kept a 16” section to use at my sawmill for a stool. This disc looks like it would make a great end grain cutting board, or it could be a candle base for a large candle, or a clock face could be installed and it could be a wall hanging. Again, any ideas will be appreciated.
