I was given hundreds of wood samples from a retired cabinetry salesman. These “tiles” are approximately 8×4 and come in just about every kind of wood and color known. I just didn’t know what to do with them. My wife suggested to make end tables and coffee tables with them. So, here is what I came up with. The coffee table is trimmed in cherry with tapered legs, the end table is walnut. Now that I have these completed, I need to figure out what to do with the other 4 boxes I still have left. Any suggestions?

There might be some guys around here who would like to make sample books out of them for craft shows and such. They could show customers different choices of wood available. Just a thought

Wooden backsplash in a kitchen? Game boards and pieces? Small dovetailed boxes would be kinda neat out of different woods….have fun with them.
