Have you ever wondered what would happen if you crossed an end-grain cutting board with a bandsaw box? Well I did, and this end-grain bandsaw valet was the result.
I had a lot of scrap wood lying around in buckets, some of it exotics and others domestic hardwoods. I wasn’t sure what to do with it and so I asked my YouTube viewers for suggestions and this led me to create this valet. It is composed of Afzelia (Doussie), Katalox (Mexican Ebony), Hard Maple, Red Oak, and Walnut. It took more time than I initially thought and a lot more sanding that I wanted to do, but the end result was worth it.
So if you’re looking for something to do with those scraps tucked in every nook and cranny of your shop, give this a try.
