This started out as a clean out the scrap rack morning, that corner was a wreclk. Wow, here’s some bloodwood, and purple heart, walnut, birch, maple, etc and some stuff I hadn’t touched in yers. I decided to glue up the scrap. Then I found a stack of exotic veneers (purple heart, rosewood, etc) and thought it would look cool if I put a few streaks through the glue ups. It did. I got distracted again when I got near the drill press and plug cutters, yea put some holes in those things and plug em with mistakes or left overs from past projects. Kind of looked like some type of solar orbit to me so I kept cleaning and finding more crap scrap to plug and fit in.
Then I got near the band saw and started cleaning around there, made a circle cutting jig and made circles out of the scrap glue ups. Decided they looked too nice to make coasters out of them, so I routered the underside and installed lazy susan casters in them.
3 coats of poly later they are on there way as gifts. Moral of the story, even scrap can be turned into something useful. Now I need more scrap!
