    When people give me scraps of wood, most times it ends up in my fire pit. Got a brother in law who works at a specialty wood shop and will give me the scraps.

    @asevereid, Can’t wait to see some finished products that you make with the scraps. Just noticed you are in BC, there must be some mills around that you can muster up some scraps for nothing?

    hey remember your SIL likes scrap wood too eh!!

    Hey there BTP, just got around to finally making something out of my scraps.
    It’s not perfect, but I’m happy with it.
    It’s a box for my mom’s wedding.
    What we’ll do is have folks write their thoughts down on some nice paper, and then fill the box with those little keep sakes.

    Very nice box! What kind of wood is it made from?

    Nice looking box you built. Your mom will love it. I think having the guest write a note is a great idea.
    Is the wood walnut?

    Looks perfect enough to me! Really like the grain contrast in the last pic, almost like laminate.

    Thanks guys.
    That’s all from the Tigerwood flooring scraps I salvaged from the last reno… With a small amount of alder for contrast.
    I glued up all the pieces trying to match the grain as best as I could… Tigerwood is tricky.

    Very nice job on the boxx. It’s a sweet gift and I hope the marriage lasts as long as the boxx will.

    Good work and even better using free leftovers. Very environmentally sound of you!

    Nice work and I’m impressed with the finish – what did you use to finish the box with??

    I’m sure it will be appreciated by your Mum at her wedding.

    I really like to wood grain and your design. Well done! Great use for those scraps. Wish I had some.

    Thanks again guys.


    @geordie99
    the finish is just simple Minwax poly.
    3 coats, and the first coat was sanded with 600 grit paper.

    Adam, that is a very nice box you built. That is professional cabinet grade work right there. Very nicely done.

    Thanks… But the pictures lie!
    There’s gaps in the miters and the surface still has a few tool marks on it.
    I’m happy with it, and I know the happy couple will be as well… But next time I’ll spend more time on it :thumbup:
