This was a cut off from a project that was in the trash. I said don’t throw that away, I can make something with it. This is what I came up with. Maple and walnut bowl. A fun project that didn’t take much time (except for the sanding) :) I just hate to throw anything away.

Great save! How did you do this bowl, is it a router carve? or a scroll saw dish?

Good salvage. Gotta use your imagination to not waste.

Thanks everyone!

Mike: I used the scroll saw. The scrap was already in this basic shape. Just a little fine tuning and a walnut bottom.

You could glue them all together and cut it like a bandsaw box.

“Saved from the trash” got my attention. The pics got my appreciation… nice save there, John. I’m just glad you weren’t referring to the oranges.. LOL Thanks for sharing! :)

Pretty nice looking trash. When it comes to wood, even a toothpick is useful. Nice work.

Paul: I thought about a bandsaw box but already had started on the bowl. I have been thinkinag about trying a bandsaw box maybe the next scrape.

Ted: I probably wouldn’t have noticed the oranges in the trash :)
