Had some blue stained lodgepole pine sitting in my scrap pile that was always in my way. Hated to burn it since it was just small scrap pieces, so I decided too make a small box with compartments. I decided to donate it to charity and fill up the bins with an odd assortment of tea, biscuits, honey and chocolates. It was fun to make and I finally got to use those scraps of wood I was hoarding away. 16” x 7” x 5”

Now that I posted a project made out of small scraps, I would like to see what you guys come up with.

That beetle kill pine is always pretty but this piece is particularly colorful. You did it proud and good on you for donating it to a charitable cause. As far as scrap projects…..that pretty much covers all of what I do. I bought tools. Now I can’t afford wood.

Beautiful piece. Andy is right, people’s version of “scraps” vary greatly. For me it also depends on the type of wood it is.
