I haven’t had much time in the shop and so these are a few crosses that I’ve been able to complete over the last month or so. I have done so many frames that I have many, many corners and decided to try to put them together into a project. Those two crosses are corner pieces arranged/glued on aspen (I think) and walnut. I then cut them out at the bandsaw.

The other simple design is walnut on maple (at least I think it is maple). All finished with Odie’s Oil.

Wow, you save your corners? Here I thought I was “excessive” for keeping rip cut-offs (1/2” square by 6” long)
8^)

Great idea, they look great! I never thought I could use similar pieces for anything useful, proven wrong and you gave me a reason to keep more 8^)

Kidding aside, these are unique and kudos for seeing the future value of your frame corners BB.

Those are great, the ones using the cirner block gives more if an appearance of 3D. And it’s even better when you use up left over drops. Not the only one who saves little drops. Well done.

Tony – thanks!

Splintergroup – oh, I’m a saver! Adds up to quite a bit of wood when I get into one of my frame making moods. Have also used some for business card holders. This is one I finished a few weeks ago.

Eric – thanks! I think the one with sapwood has a bit of a quilt look to it. They are thick – thought about trying to cut down on the bandsaw, but decided to keep the depth.

The business card holder looks great Barb. I see the quilt pattern now that you mentioned it.

Eric – walnut is my favorite so I’m always looking for ways to use up all of it. Business card holders are an easy way to use random pieces and make for nice little gifts for colleagues.

The ones with the cut angles look great. They blend together really well.

I agree, I like Walnut, Cherry and Maple, I started using Ash recently and that seems nice to work with and finish.

I have a 24 drawer cabinet (salvaged) I use half of them to put small drops into, each drawer has a different flavor. Never know when I need a small piece for something or another.

Corelz125- thanks. I still have a whole container of “corners” so may see if I have enough of similar size for a few more.

Eric – I like that idea. I have all my corners mixed together but for other pieces I have plastic tubs (some shallow – think they were for wrapping paper or underbed storage) separated by wood type. Definitely is better to have them grouped either by type or size.

I purchased an ash board during my last outing to the hardwood place. Haven’t started any projects with it yet.

That cabinet is like an oversized apothecary cabinet.
