Trying to find a simple way to sell pottery mugs in pairs and make it easy to carry away so I cut up pile of twisted old spruce and pine boards that a young man was throwing out for his mother.
They were 3/4” thick so I just put in a 30 tooth blade and ripped them in half until I had a few hundred 2-1/8” x 12” x 3/8” slats and a hundred 4-1/4” x 5” x 3/4” ends pieces. Ran all sides and edges on the belt sander and brad nailed them together. Not worrying about wobbles and various imperfections. No finishes.
They are a rustic, light and inexpensive way to use up wood that would otherwise be headed for the landfill :)
