The is absolutely nothing you can make with just 60 bft of red oak. Simply package it up and send it my way! LOL!

Don’t use it for cutting boards, that’s for sure. Red oak just isn’t good for that.

I recently make my nephew a wedding present out of some scraps I had. Sorry, no pictures but I made them a napkin holder and the salt and pepper shakers from Jay Bates’ page. I’m sure you could spice them up by mixing in some other woods. Simple projects but nice results and appreciated since they are hand made.

You can make a bunch of nice bows out of that! Probably not the greatest wedding present though, lol.

Good suggestions so far. I did some more searching for some inspiration and I was thinking maybe something like a small hutch for them to use as a bar/liquor cabinet.
