Scrap wood and spare time. Two things I find myself always short of.
After finishing a previous bed project, and a box full of pieces of leftover cherry, none measuring wider than 3 inches. Something had to be done. We have been known to relax on the couch of the boat with a glass of wine and without a table big enough to hold everything. The result was a coffee table made with the scrap wood. Then we talked about how nice it would be to have a compass rose inlay on the top. Finish was chestnut varnish, laquer. This is after the first coat of laquer, there will be more to come. Compass rose is 1/32” thick, so the sanding is done with a gentle hand.
