I feel like I have rescued a pup from the shelter. It was laying in the scrap bin. I asked for it and they looked at me like I was crazy. The said if you want it then its your for free!!

This board is the ugliest board I have ever seen. That is why I bought it. I will make something beautiful from it and it will live on forever. Maybe a jewelry box. Maybe a cutting board. Not sure yet.

Before you rush in to make something of it, you may want to wait awhile to make sure its done what it’a going to do.

Good going. I made a lot of short projects from just boards like that. Tey should have given it to you!!

I don’t see anything wrong with that board… You should see some of my free lumber.

It is so lets see how long it stays there before getting moved to a more appropiate area.

Immediately I got like five ideas for it. As I always say, there is no such thing as scrap wood.

I would make a table top out of it. use the bowtie method to draw it together and accent it rather than hide it or cut it out.

That board has some wild stress in it. Be CAREFUL cutting it, I don’t think it is finished moving.
