Perhaps I am a little crazy, but I seem to have a cutoff problem. I collect and save more wood cutoffs than any sane man should. I look at a piece of wood and say, “This is from a really nice piece of hard maple, I’m sure that I can use this down the road!”
Needless to say, I am never short of wood for the fire pit. There is never a need to walk through the woods out back in search of kindling.
The cabinet is made with oak plywood. The shelving and vertical pieces are glued into dado slots. I cut thin strips of red oak and glued the strips to all exposed plywood edges. The cabinet was finished with Danish oil and a few coats of a wipe on polyurethane.
Many cut offs remain in baskets, crates, and empty trash cans in my shop, but the rule for what goes into the cut off cabinet is: cut offs must be a minimum of 3” wide, 12” long, and a nice hardwood.
