Scrap wood box was getting kinda full, as I tend to be a bit of a wood hoarder, so I pulled a few pieces out and made these nice little bread boards. The larger one is Hickory with 3/8 in walnut strips, the other is edge grain Hard Maple, Black Walnut, and African Mahogany. These should make nice Christmas gifts and they go together pretty quick!

Those are not scraps, just unique sticks awaiting to be assembled by the artist. You are the artist. Nicely done.
