Time to clean out my lumber storage, to give more room for more project jobs coming in.
These projects will go to the auction, to get a little return for my scrap transformation.
Some walnut 7/8” x 7/8” sticks had enough of them, to build another mini pie safe about a year ago, this week I finished it by putting the aluminum flashing squares in, to complete this project.
I had a couple of old 2×2’s as well as some 3/4” x 1 1/2” wide slats, doweld them together to make a rustic hat rack.
Some leftover pieces of 2×4 material resawed to 5/8” thick, gave me an idea to glue and dowel together to make a rustic mirror frame less the mirror, because I don’t want to spend any money on these projects, just use up scrap material.
some leftover 2×4’s and 2×2’s allowed me to make a chair glider, I did have to purchase the steel bar and hardware to make the glider mechanisms (swing bars), about $5.00 total.
I still had this slab cutoff to get rid of out of my storage, so I figured it would make a good top for a sitting bench/coffee table.
A few weeks ago, we cut down a small crepe myrtle tree in our side yard, I seen a lot of potential for good rustic coffee table standoffs, so today I built this one, I was able to get rid of some old beadboard cutoffs, for the top and a piece of very old pine 2×6 to use as the base support and feet.
I Still have more scrap material to clean out, Ive been watching reruns of woodsmith shop to look for ideas of making small project pieces, that they show, using my old scrap material, recreating the pieces into rustic/antique versions.
have fun in the shop.
