Awhile back, we did a scrap challenge and we saw a few great entries. I’m hosting a new scrap challenge, but this one is to use a specific set of scraps.
The generous people over at westcoast woodslabs donated some offcuts for the wood turning class. This is the load we got before processing:
It took a couple hours to process it into what I felt are the most useful pieces for turning.
But of course, we ended up with plenty of pointy little bits that aren’t quite triangles, a box full that looks like this:
My Challenge To You!
Use the wood from this box to make something. It can be pretty, it can be useful, it can be cool, or some combination of the three. When you’ve created something, post your entry to this thread. The deadline is December 10th (1 month from today).
Yes! This challenge comes with a prize. The winner of the contest wins one of the gary oak offcuts. The voting will begin December 10th and be closed a few days on December 13th. This is an example of the piece you will win (though it might be slightly different).
The box of scraps you can use for this project is currently in the woodshop. You can use other material but the focus should be on the scrap pieces used.
- Multiple entries are allowed
- Only take what you will use, one purpose is to make sure these nice but small bits of wood don’t get wasted
