Pictured: Bandsaw made Bowls out of Walnut.

Story: A while back I had the great fortune to harvest via my chainsaw a downed Walnut tree that had been on the ground for a couple, few years from a neighboring town called Hutto which was about 45 miles from me, once I got the logs home, I milled them into boards and left some in their natural log form to make jewelry log boxes from using my bandsaw, once the boxes were made I had these left over cutouts and were thrown to the side and about to be discarded when the idea hit me to keep them for a later project so they lay around the shop for several months until a week ago when they made there way to my bandsaw table and thus the outcome you see in the photos.

Moral of the story, never throw away which that you can make something out of. :)

Thanks for looking and comments are always enjoyed.

Very cool, Blackie! They came out beautiful. I always find a great deal of satisfaction making something nice out of what most consider waste. You sure did great here. :)

Very nice…!Make every little left-over piece of wood count….that’s why toothpicks are made from wood…

Very Nice Randy. I have a ton of drawer cuts out saved for something. I did make a few smaller boxes, but yours look nice & small. Great for the small items.

Blackie,

These should sell as holders, or as give-aways to kids at shows. I continue to think that a battery powered bandsaw operating in your booth would be a crowd pleaser and sales booster.
