Two boxes made from pieces of scrap wood to small to make anything larger, but I am to cheap to throw away. One made with splined miter joints the other finger joints. I use them to store router bits.

Scraps to treasures. That’s what their for. We don’t always have to build that big prize winning project. Nice job. Welcome to LumberJocks. Good Luck.

These look very nice and it’s always good to make projects from scrap if possible.
