I was cleaning out my shop the other day and I got a lot of scrape lumber. I was just seeing if you guys have any good ideas to use it on stuff. I used some of it to make a clamp rack but that didn’t even put a dent in it. What other things could I make that would be useful in the shop.

Show some pics of your shop and maybe some ideas can be had. Of course the list of shop furniture, jigs, fixtures, handmade accessories, etc. could be endless.
Show a photo of your scraps too, so we have an idea what you have to work with.

Anything with drawers in it is good exercise.
