Very cool. My scraps either end up in the wood stove or get sold to a company that make crafts.

Nice chair Jim, but wouldn’t a scrap box be a better use of scrap? :-)) :-))

That’s some chair, do you have a matching table?

Just put some plastic, wood grained laminate over it, and you have mass produced, “big box furniture”.

I never seem to have wood scraps, just smaller pieces of wood I use later.

Just yesterday I started a fire in a fire ring on the patio. I could not put too much wood in at a time. I ended up going out and adding more wood between each half inning while watching the Tigers play the Rangers (and win with a walk off home run in the bottom of the 9th). By the end of the day, I got rid of two 55 gallon barrels of scraps.

Looks like someone was bored. I like it, it would certainly be a conversation piece.

I have seen that thing up close and personal at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston. I’ll be nice and just say it’s not my style. I don’t necessarily hate it, I just don’t care for it… And I certainly don’t think it gets to the level of what I consider fine art for sure.

I think I’d be more impressed if the scraps actually made up the structure of the chair, instead of being haphazardly glued to it.
