I just CAN NOT bring myself to throw scraps away … especially when I can make stuff I can use out of them.
These little bench accessories can from a barrel of red oak scraps … the pencil holder and mallet head are off-cuts from the legs of my Morris chair.
The chisel rack is from a plan published in the current (#196 – March 2010) issue of WOOD Magazine.
The mallet handle is wrapped with hockey tape … borrowed that idea from Rob Cosman.
For the pencil holder, I drilled out most of the waste with a 3/8” spade-bit (staying clear of the center), then chucked a 2” forstner bit in the drill press to finish the job.
