I just wanted to post a couple of things I do with the scraps I end up with.
When I build my small arcade boxes (I sell these to support my tool hobby/obsession), I always end up with small cutoffs. A lot of guys would throw these in the wood stove; they’re usually small (2 1/4” x ~7”). Instead of throwing them out I make small cauls for gluing up my boxes. I have the bucket about half full.
And from ripping boards to width, I usually end up with long offcuts. I rip these to 1/8” strips and then cut to 8” lengths for finish stirrers. They really come in handy.
Thanks for looking!
