Not too exciting. I make these every year. This is my inventory for our first show in August. I usually make the high side of a couple dozen using strictly scraps and cutoffs and manage to sell out or just about sell out every time. Great use of smalls as you can see from some of the designs. I also mix up the grains. I have them going lengthwise, tall and end grain. Anything to use them up. I just got them waxed up today and installed the hardware, so before I packed them away I wanted to share. The design calls for 5.75×7 minimum size. I usually make mine a minimum of 6×8. Regardless of the size or thickness they are all one price. Hardware is from cheeseslicing.com.

Someone stopping by can seriously say, who cut the cheese. That is a collection of boards.

Very nice. How much do you sell them for if I may ask. Whenever I make something from offcuts I don’t know how much to sell them for, it usually feels that I’m ripping off the customer no matter what my asking price is

Around here the going rate is $29. I still have about $5 in hardware costs plus the shorts, although cutoffs could still be used for other projects. So they still have value.

These are as small as I go. I know some people make doorstops, and keychains from tiny pieces but I’ve never had time to try that. I burn the rest.

Jim a couple of questions I like that you have enlarged to 6×8, I also always sell out on these. I have been making them 3/4 are yours thicker?
Also I have noticed in pictures 2 0n right top one looks like walnut and cherry I have never made them with grain going the same way as wire, interesting idea, any thoughts.
Then bottom one with looks like lawn grain maple and look like cutoffs from cutting boards any though on that one? Thank you for your time
