Over the winter, I accumalated somemore scrap cutoffs from jobs I finished doing, the scrap bins are overflowing, so again it was time to give myself more room, by turning this scrap into some kind of profit, at the auction.
All these planks started off as rectangular cutoffs, and the thin material are roughly anywhere from 1” to 2” wide cutoffs, that were aquired during ripping of long planks during a job project.
When I build these one offs, scrap bin projects, I cut all the pieces to final width and length, then dry assemble the project with dowels, then when I’m satisfied with the assembly, I draw a rough freeform on the planks, then take it all apart, and begin freeform cutting, using my bandsaw, or jig saw, then to give it the edge treatments, I use my angle grinder, or a drum sander held in my portable drill, depending what kind of edgeing I want to give it, followed by my straight line sander to smooth out the faces of the planks, I also use my grinder or drum sander, to do the contours on the vertical pieces too.
This one I built today.
Have fun in the shop…
