It always seems we always have those scraps that just aren’t big enough for the current project, but we KNOW have some potential for a project on down the road. I have a LOT of those. Old crates I have salvaged—gotta keep the oak and maple separate from the lowly pine. Small pieces that will make great oxes with the proper coaxing. You know the drill.

Anyway I got the idea from one of those tips and tricks things we all check out. This si my version. I joined three 2×4s with one 2×3 to get the 13 inch base for the 12 inch cobcrete tube. I resawwed a 2×4 to get the outside support and drilled a hole at about 45 degrees so the screw would secure teh tube to the wood base.
Maybe it is a bit of overkill, but that is just me….LOL

I will make some soon using the 8” tubes for smaller pieces.

No wheels on this opn, Debbie. I have anotgher one that I made from some 4×4 panels of particle board, that is on wheels. it is pretty full of tongue in groove oak flooring I salvaged, though. This is for my pallet salvaged and bought wood. ;o)) YES, I am going to work in real, store-bought wood, finally!

God Bless,

I love the scrap wood project that fulfills a need. Sweet. Woodworkers ARE the original recyclers, reusers and conservationists. Good job.

That is a slick idea that has to help with the clutter.

That’s pretty cool. I have two forms from when I was teaching my wife to parallel park.
