I keep all my cutoffs of expensive wood in a box (old drawer) that I may use for inlays and various other things. I keep it on the bottom shelf of my workbench and lift it out whenever I need it. I had some slides I recovered that were sitting doing nothing so I put them to work. Now I just pull out the box whenever I need a small piece of wood. A lot easier on the back. LOL, What do you think Monte?

I think your wood box (old drawer) is too small…....................

I have one of these, too. I plan to get some slides for it at some point, but have not gotten around to it yet.

Rick, I have seen your shop. If you can afford that you can afford exotics.

For now mine are in a milk crate or 5 gallon bucket.
A drawer system would be nice for small offcuts, of which I have a lot of.

I see im not the only one who saves what seems to be small “useless” pieces. I just can’t bear to throw a lot of them out. I keep mine in a 5 gallon buck, as well as the longer but still small ones on a home made shelf.

I actually found a use for some of the bigger ones for the plane swap so thats good.
