Their is no sure thing as scrap timber, just offcuts awaiting a project.

My daughter along with being a full time mum does amateur professional photography plus does up cycling of old furniture that would otherwise become landfill. [I got her a SCMS for Christmas]

We had discussed the making a cordless tool organizer, for her shed but it was easier for me to get it sorted for her.

So I found a plan on the internet and adapted it to suit the “awaiting projects” timber I had stored.

Not pretty but strong and functional, using up a stack of plywood offcuts.

Cool crowie.

Now all she has to do is buy some Fe$tool to fit… people claim that ’tainers are a PITA.

Nice work, Peter! And with the price of plywood as it is, using every last piece is just plain good thinking.

Nice work. And a motto that definitely fits my shop…which has less and less free space in it due to wood gathering.

Well done crowie, like you I keep off cuts until they become sawdust and even then that is put on the garden for much.

I hang on and then become a Netherlandisch... landfill!

I admire people that can remove the ”s” out of their scraps... no matter how hard I try, that scrap is always 1mm shorter than what I want…. then I go to the bigger piece which is too pcecious to turn into scraps.

Looks rock solid!

Really cool your kid is into restoring old stuff, one can certainly learn a lot from that and apply it onwards.

I’d consider those “scraps” as premium supplies I’d keep locked up!
