Scrap Table

There is always so much good lumber lying around the shop that is tossed aside after a project, only to be underutilized as a jig, or taken to the dump so I decided to try to make something from it. This table is made from Solid Ash cutoffs that have been lying around the shop for a while.

I took the pile of strips and glued them up into 2 table sized rectangles. After sanding then down, I then cut the ends off and and connected the pieces to create a set of continuous lines around the table. Where the scrap met up, they met and where they didn’t, there is a void.

I am still not sure where to put the table, but I hope it will find a home soon. Let me know if you are interested in it. There also might be more to come in different shapes and sizes if there is any interest for it.

    what about using a cityscape in the negative space? Chicago, NYC, etc..

    Love the use of cut-offs. I find that’s one of the easiest inspirations for any of my own building projects in the shop. Plus, the material is free. We just got a huge stack of maple in our shop (for some countertops) and I’ll be eyeing up the cutoffs.
