The box is completely made from scraps I accumulated over the past several months with a little glue. I cut the strips into blocks of uniform thickness and used the blocks to construct two pieces that would interlock. Next, I resawed each piece to form the front, back and sides. Instead of making a square box, I angled the sides to make a more interesting scrap box

Good Idea – Well done.

I am a recovering pen-turner. When I was actively turning pens I accumulated a lot of pen blanks that I will never use now that I am “on the wagon”. This gives me a great idea for what to do with my stash of pen blanks

Great use of scraps. Looks like it got some folks thinking about how to use their scraps.

Great use of scraps. Nice design. Glad to see all the current projects coming from scrap wood.

Keep it up.
