The manner in which my friend Grumpy nice used pieces of waste wood, it gave me the idea to give you an indication on which way it makes my father.
His days of retirement in this way have become extremely creative, fulfilled in this recession financially very useful!

The carpenter’s workshop, his friends all waste generated during the production of windows and doors (small slats and planks) he used to make small Home decoration!
Since the slats paste, formed by wooden boards are becoming stronger than ordinary wooden planks.

Well, look at his work:).

These are some of his father’s creations..

It is obvious that we both shared the love of wood, marquetry techniques over me, him in his carpentry.

Dusan, your dad has quite a talent for using those left over offcuts.
As we say down under- you are a chip off the old block.
Interpreted that means ‘like Father like Son’.
Well done both of you.

Thanks Grumpy!
I think that my old father would not believe that his work was seen in distant Australia:)!

This is great and something I can totally relate to. I can see the pleasure in your Dad’s face as he is working on his projects. Scraps are just smaller cuts off the tree. I appreciate that he finds a good use for it.

My dear friends, pleased to see that you are my father’s work attractive, and that you recognized his contentment at work!
Enjoy to observe how nearly the “nothing” (the waste wood) creates “something” ..
In a way, all of us at his craft doing something similar.

ps. My father objected that you did not show and its wall shelves for your phone:)
