We are all looking for uses of our scrap wood. I, like many, have a real issue with tossing out any wood….even the smallest of pieces.
I don’t know if this has been posted before, but I thought I was a genius to come up with yet another way of whittling down the abundance of wood in the old scrap bin.
In order to keep the doors in the house from putting a hole in the drywall, you can make one of these. In this case I went with segmented padauk and maple , but of course they can be made from solid pieces. They can be turned round or not? I hid how the segments did not meet perfectly in the middle by drilling out the center.
I then ripped them half on the bandsaw. Have to conserve this beautiful wood…(I need therapy, I have become a wood hoarder).
I used some carpet tape on the back to mount them onto the wall, which will hold it secure forever.
Looks way better than the alternative at Walmart …..and way cheaper. (Nearly 4 bucks for a plastic circle…..you have to be kidding me).
Simply, it is also something one can do on a raining Saturday.
