I’ve been getting ready for our annual 3 day show https://www.atwoodfallfest.org and knee deep in saw dust for a couple months.
I’m pretty sure that when someone ( even me ) says that they are using up scrap and cut offs for projects, they failed to mention that it takes twice as much planning and preparation to make some of it work. The easiest use of cut offs for me is cutting boards and here are a few that probably won’t last too long.
Picture #1 and #2 are deliberate planning edge grain boards and not scrap
Picture #3 is left over edge grain from several planned boards
Picture $4 is a multitude of egde grain cut offs
Picture $5 is edge grain cut offs
Picture #6 is edge grain cut offs

Thanks for looking

Beautiful! Cutting boards are a great way to use scrap.

Great to use up all the offcuts Dick and wow sir, you have certainly done a beautiful job of turning what would have waste into a top functional piece of woodworking art (even if it took twice as long). Well done!

Please post some photos of the woodwork at the festival.

Sweet! I was just tripping over my cutoffs in the shop yesterday and wondering if I should trash them to make room to work. Now I know what to do with them, thanks for posting.
