Milling scraps
« on: November 23, 2005, 10:26:42 AM »
I had some little pieces of walnut that I was going to burn in the fireplace, but I thought I would just throw something together. I made a friend a Bible box a while back and she asked if I would make another so as I sat in front of the fire I thought I would just use what I had in hand. So I just threw this together.

This is the first one


This is the latest one.

Those are nice.  It's funny how the prettiest little pieces always get thrown away as scrap.   That's quite a challenge you've taken on to use them up.   Pretty stuff. :)

Xtra nice! :)

My shop is cluttered with chunks of firewood that were just too pretty to burn.

I know that feeling I just can't bear to throw some stuff away.
I get a scrap and start to throw it away and then I get some bright idea of a project and I set it aside.

I did throw a few scraps out the other day as I just got sick of tripping over them and I burned a bunch. I only cried a little :-[

Super woodworking skills. Amazing what natural beauty comes out of wood handcrafted with extra care and craftsmanship. That figured walnut takes on different colors and hues just by looking at it from different directions.
You have a gift.    Now, the more scraps you burn, the more rare these pieces become.  :D

Thatís a beauty SWIS...and a most appropriate use.  Looks like you book matched the top?  I find that I saw a lot more figured wood than I use to...keep the good stuff all for myself and sell the boring straight grain stuff.
