Small scrap boxes

I had a lot of scraps laying around the shop and they jus kept piling up. Something had to be done because the wood was to good to toss; so I have been making lots of little boxes from it. Small pieces of curly went on top of some walnut. Some badly warped, thin walnut crotch wood became the top for 2 others. Finally, I drug out some some plain sawn red sycamore pieces and played with a different top orientation and adding a band of scrap brazilian cherry to hide the top’s glue line. These are quick and easy projects for me that get the juices flowing. I can work on them a bunch at a time, or go in and work on 1 when I only have 15 minutes. It is also better than tossing good wood in the firewood bin.

Those are really good looking boxes. Really helps your feelings to be able to use up some of that scrap and get it out of the way without throwing it away doesn’t it? Great work!

You’ve got some fantastic nice boxes out of some very nice scrap wood. Great job. Beautifull woods and great builds.

Keep it up.
