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.
you can see more of my simple boxes at
