A buddy of mine has been bringing me these round pieces of plywood and particle board that are left over from some sort of packaging. They are various diameters and thicknesses. Never one to turn down free wood, I have been stockpiling them. Add that to the various other odds and ends I seem to collect, its sorta getting out of hand. So i decided it was time for some quick scrap wood projecting
The first first pics are of a set of miter saw supports that have been a long time in the coming. Since I found that piece of laminated shelving, I thought it would be ideal for this. I split it in two and then cut down some of the 3/4” thick circles to make the bases. I sorta like that I can move them outta the way when I don’t need them. Since I was salvaging wood the particleboard, I didn’t have any pieces that were long enough so I had to piece it together. The whole thing is glued and nailed along the joints.
The plywood “flowers” were my wife’s idea. We recently made a trip to Lancaster PA and while prowling the Amish woodworking shops she saw something similar. Well y’all know me…open mouth and insert foot… “Dear, I can make you some of those”. After bonding with the band saw, a flower patch for her elementary school was born.
The third is a set of direction signs I built built for my friends bussiness. Scrap 2×4’s routed and glued into panels. You guessed it, more plywood circles were sacrificed to to make the arrows.
Two quick notes… First- in the first pic you can see I still have plenty of circles left…lol Second, please don’t tell Candy that the third picture was taken atop a set of unfinished corn hole boards for my son. I would never hear the end of it…lol
