I really like projects when i can go down to the shop and use what i already have without going to the store and buy “the optimal” wood for “the perfect” solution.

It started with purely practical reasons
i have a small shop with almost no storage space and before i can buy more wood i have to get rid of the old.

therefor i started doing projects with scrap pieces.

its fun, you have to let the wood define the project, so to speak. and if you are a novice like me thats a nice challenge. excellent way to learn about wood.

Earlier this week i made some toolboxes, simple and fun.
i used leftovers from earlier projects and tried to do something practical and useful.

I admire those who see the beauty in leftovers…It’s sort of like second day pasta. Great job!
