It looks like you could glue these pieces to a board and call it art! Sell it for a few $$Thou, then decide who got the best deal in the divorce ;-)

You have also inspired me with your project. I just ordered a thin rip jig for the table saw, so I can use up those scraps sitting around. I plan on making a cutting board with a twist. Keep up the woodworking!

Hi Occie. Nice work on the rings from the lay up of scraps. Did you turn them on the lathe or cut them out flat?

I’m working on a glue up that will have over 1000 pieces of teak wood, about 98% green.
