Yeah, I have a bin full of unusable pieces that I’ve convinced myself are usable. It finally got unmanageable, so I grabbed a couple 5 gallon pails recently, and started filling them up with the pieces that I’ve convinced myself I’ll someday use, but never will. After I finish my current project, the pails are getting sent across the street to my neighbor who has a fire pit. Win/win situation. I did keep a small piece (maybe 10”x4” of 4/4) for random uses, like wedges or plugs.

I think the fact that my wife has recently increased my funding (because I’m solely doing projects for the house/family now) has helped me to part with the random scraps and odd-sized plywood pieces.
