Had a bunch of 1/2 red oak cutoffs laying around, too big to throw away, but too small for most projects, well, they finally showed me what they wanted to be. I have been meaning to work on organization for quite some time, and this has been a good and welcome start.

Sometimes the wood let’s you know exactly what it wants to be and in this case it appears to that you listened.
Those are real nice and are obviously going to be worthwhile.

Thanks, i have a pile of wood that just sits in storage, and every now and then as i walk by, a piece will jump out and say that this is what it was meant to be, whether its a box, or a baby rattle.

LOL! The pile of scraps in my shop gets to the point where they jump into the burn box all by themselves! Have to get a tool chest made to use up the small stuff to make hangers.

Nice storage boxes – I’m not nearly as inventive with my cutoffs, they usually become cheese slicing boards

It’s nice seeing tools move out of their cardboard boxes into something really nice.

I couldn’t agree more. Good tools deserve good homes.
