After asking myself what to write for my first blog ever, I thought why not find out what to do with all my “scrap” wood. Over the past 20 years I have collected cutoffs and ends that the companies I worked for were going to throw out. I have several pallets (3’ x 3’ x 5’tall) of oak and cherry each. I also have maple, birch, walnut, hickory, and some mahogany. After looking on here at the cutting boards, segmented bowls, and jewlery boxes, I think I have a good idea of what I can do with all this wood. I know that oak should not be used for cutting boards, but I have more of that than anyother wood. So does anybody else have ideas of what I could do with all of this wood?
I have seen the many different projects that all of you have made. I always thought of myself and a pretty good woodworker, but now I’m not to sure. The woodworkers in here have shown me that I have a long ways to go before I can call myself good. But, with alot of practice and projects, and I have alot of them, I should be able to say that I am a pretty dang good woodworker.
When I get more projects done I’ll be sure to post them.
