I’ve seen several forum conversations lately about what to do with all those little pieces of wood that you can’t find a use for but can’t bear to get rid of either. Here’s an idea I had and it has been pretty successful.
Since a lot of what I do is with laminated blocks, I end up with triangles or rectangles of wood that are just too substantial to throw away or to toss in the firebox. I decided to pick up a couple clock faces w/ movements and used the appropriate forstner bit to put the hole in the block. Sand sand sand and finish finish finish and viola desk top clocks made of Walnut, Narra, Padauk, and Bloodwood. I give them away as small gifts to teachers or co-workers.
They all vary in size since they are made from cutoffs but they usually aren’t any taller than 5” and are 2-3” wide.
I hope this helps with ideas for the scrap problem. Thanks for taking a look.
