Dusty Newt postd some earrings a few days back made out of scrap wood. I have lots of scraps left over from the segment projects that I do so while in the garage yesterday I remembered Dusty’s earrings that he made and decided to play around and see if I could make a set that half way matched. Not sure how Dusty hangs on to the small parts while shaping / sanding but that seems to be the biggest challenge. Thanks Dusty, it was a different area to venture in woodworking. The earrings are spalted maple.

Now that is a great way to not let scrap wood go to waste, Mike. I was also making some tiny feather ear rings from scrap wood and, like you, it was frustrating trying to hang on the such small pcs of wood while I shaped, sanded and carved. Half way through, the light bulb came on and I grabbed a pc of “TickyTack”, pressed it on a board and then pressed the wood on it. It held quite well while I wood burn the feather on them.
