This box came about from not wanting to throw away or burn scrap wood. Each square is 9×9 out of red oak set on top of another square at a 45 degrees. So don’t get rid of your scraps, something can be done with them.

Wow, that is really creative! I am with you on not throwing anything away; it has to be pretty small or oddly shaped for me to want to get rid of it. On a completely unrelated note I really need to come up with a way to store all these pieces of wood that are around me!

I love it. I have two huge boxes of scrap and have not paid for wood in weeks. Great Idea.

That is pretty cool looking. I am currently working on projects in the shop to use up a loto of scrap. I love this use however.

Welcome aboard, can’t wait to see some other projects.

This is a pretty unique box and it is a good way to use up those scrap pieces that we just can’t bear to toss.
