Last year Steve Carmichael did a project for the scrap bin challenge. He took a glass vase and put saw dust of all kind of wood in it. It really turned out well. I was walking through a big box store and they had these glass center blocks on sale. I think I paid $4 for it. The best part was it had a opening on the top to put what ever you want in it. When I seen it I thought of Steve’s vase and went ahead and picked it up. Over the last six or eight months, I have been putting some saw dust in this block. I always had the attention to mail it to Steve when filled. Well I took it a step further and build a frame around the block. What better material to use then the 2X4. That’s what this project is about.

Neat idea. I have seen the same principle using colored sand in bottles to do art scenes. I don’t see any reason why we shouldn’t be recycling our sawdust. Who knows, it could be the next big thing at the craft fairs.
