Greetings,

I’ve got so much of my cut off that I ended up gluing them up to make a bigger board. I spent over 1 week doing that. I still have boxes of cut offs.

I wanted something different in the way of just a raised panel in the door, I made a fixture to hold the board at an angle while I ran it over the table saw blade, only about 3’16” deep.

I’m not perfect, so there’s an extra grove in one panel. Also, one grove wasn’t deep enough, so I make a tool for my Router Plane.

At least now I have my planes in one place.

That’s the way to repurpose. I have a burn bin as there is a wood fireplace in the house. Sometimes take a bin for camping and the the wife likes to pick out the pretty coloured wood in strange shapes?
