The best multi use door stop ever

After throwing what I would consider scrap wood in a pile my son came in the shop. As a boy does he walked up to the pile and began to go through it looking for some sort of treasure. He picked up a piece and told me this would make a great door stop because my shop door keeps shutting because of the wind.

So I asked what he wanted to do with it and he asked if he could sand it. After he finished he put it to use to hold my door open and it worked great. He then told me it could also be a ramp for his matchbox cars.

I love the creations my kids come up with from the scrap bin. Hats off to your son for coming up with something useful from the discarded scraps.

Noticed the ear protection. Where’s the dust mask, safety glasses, gloves and flack vest?

Wonderful project, what a smart kid, he can see treasure where others see trash.
Fine work, looks beautifully sanded, really impressed by the patience put into it.
Way to go!
