By electic, I mean I used all and every kind of scrap I had laying around. It measures 10’’ x 9’’ x 1’’ and the woods used are cedar, cherry, sassafras, spalted hickory, sycamore, and walnut.

Thanks for the looks and comments.

Nice way to use all the extra scraps and it looks good. i did the same thing with left over scraps but instead i made a tabletop with them.

Why toss it out when you can make something nice with it. Good move !

There is no such thing as scrap…they’re just “small pieces”.

Very interesting. Imagine a floor made from different pieces of wood.

I am new at woodworking….and a bit ‘slow’ (so the wifey says anyway)....did you just glue them but, plane them, and then cut it?

I have wanted to do something like that…..but never really asked, ‘how’~~~

Cools awesome~

dust4tears——I cut all the wood first in 1’’ x 1’’s and different lengths. I sanded them down a little bit before gluing and then after words, I re-sanded to get remaining glue off and then cut it to the size I wanted and then final sanded it. It turned out good for me but there are others on here who are far better than I am. Thanks for the interest and give it a try!!!!
