We all have scrap bins, cut-offs and small pieces of wood that we end up with after every project. Mine was getting out of control. I made every attempt at putting the little pieces to good use but always came up with “almost enough”. So,...I decided to glue them all together and make one big piece of wood. In doing this, I gave no regard to grain direction. After getting them all glued up, I sent them through the planer which just had new blades installed. I took off about 1/32 of an inch at each pass. When it was all said and done, I thought “NOW WHAT!?” What could I make with this collage of different woods.
I just happen to pay my son a visit at his apartment when I saw all his books on the floor in stacks against the wall. I asked him why they were on the floor and he said, “I don’t have a book shelf”. BLING! An idea just popped into my head. I can use the collage to decorate the book shelf. Well, this is the end result. After my wife saw it, she wants one now. Oh well, I have some more scraps so why not.
