I have such a hard time throwing away even the smallest scraps. These were drops from some puzzle blocks that a man ordered, just too cool to throw away! The little snail on top was a leftover piece of epoxy filler that I couldn’t let go of either…

-- How it happened that Mastro Cherry, carpenter, found a piece of wood that wept and laughed like a child.

I had to learn to let go and throw away (space/organization issues). I used to cling to every chunk of hardwood bigger than my thumbnail as it was my last piece as I only had known pine. I since have discovered cheaper hardwood directly from sawmills instead of overpriced box store hardwood and have a little easier time tossing things.

Way to be resourceful! What are the dimensions?

This so sounds like something I would do! hahaha Would make a great trivet. How big is it? By the way…what are ‘drops’?

It serves as a visual and tangible reminder of a project you did, but no longer have. Also a keepsake of those lovely pieces of redwood. There are definitely jobs where I wish I had taken more care with the scraps.
