Scrappy End Table

What do you do with all those leftover scraps of 3/4 inch wood from a summers worth of projects? You glue them all together and make an end table that looks like it took days of planning and work. Even with the 100 pieces and tapered legs, this project took me less then 10 hours. The center block is connected to the legs with dowels for strength and assist in line-up when gluing.

A cool bonus of this piece is that it looks just as cool right side up as it does upside down.

Dude, that is awesome! I really like the form and the way it draws your eye down the piece.

Excellent idea!
That is indeed a work of art!
very clever way to clean up the scrap bin and make a show piece all that the same time, great work!

@ DaveGLX

100 pieces of 3/4” scrap, so I’m assuming the block is 7 1/2” x 7 1/2”.

Correct vakman, the final size is around 10×10 with the legs. The end table is a gift for a family member who lives in an apartment in NYC – small on size and big on design is key in NYC.

How heavy is this? Great use of scraps! Now all you need to do is make a matching coffee table.
