In between two paid projects this summer, I wanted to do a week-long project that would use up some scraps from the bin as well as get some creative juices flowing. I recently was given a set of chisels that belonged to my grandfather and wanted to make a rack that would sit on the bench to keep them at arm’s length, without the risk of them just rolling around loose on the benchtop. I also got to work out some design kinks and create something that might someday be a hall table. Anyway, woods are laminated “sandwiches” of (here goes): Rosewood, Padauk, Redheart, Paela, Maple, Cherry, Walnut, Zebrawood, Andiroba, and African Mahogany. And oak, as in the pegged joints holding it all together. Save your scraps, glue them all together, and see what you can create!
