It is amazing when you think, off cuts from here and there I collected during long period of time can meet each other and produce a little beautiful box.

It really is surprising just what those little bits of wood get up to while “hanging around” in the container.
No matter what they were doing, the end result is really good.
Congratulations and thank you for sharing this beauty with us.

Bob.

Peter G and Grumpy, I hate the word WASTE. Sometimes, the shortage of space and time, force us to bin valuable small pieces.

Dr. Ken, you need to look for new ideas to recharge your interest. I go through such thing as well sometimes.
