These are some pieces that would have ended up in most folks burn bin. Instead I just cleaned them up and put a base and finish on them :

This is two separate pieces of walnut, looks like one.

The lady was a gift to my wife from a gal at church, we never much cared for it till I made this display stand.

The right two are from the same board, the right one is from the bottom of the left one.

I enjoy finding junk wood and then turn it into something special.

Nearly misses this one, very unique, the vertical is cherry and the base is sycamore.

That’s a great idea. I might have to make some for myself.

Great use for some of that scrap that we all have lying around. These would work nicely as displays for Craft Fairs as well.

Thank you for your comments. I enjoy taking the useless pieces and finding the beauty in them.
