The last two scrap challenges were great successes for reminders, here they are!
We’ve now had two donations of high-quality scraps; the first is from www.westcoastwoodslabs.com and the most recent one is from a member: @Hekseskudd. Westcoast Woodslabs gave us a bunch of Walnut, and @Hekseskudd gave us Walnut and Oak pieces. Additionally,
I challenge you to use the woodscraps we’ve been given to make something. It can be decorative, useful, both, etc. While the judging will be entirely up to the membership, I recommend the following to be considered:
Use of the ‘least useful’ scraps is encouraged. If you can use all the tiny little bits that nobody will have use for, that’s amazing! However, you can use any of the available woodscraps. Making use of any interesting ‘found’ shapes is also super-cool. The use of existing curves likely led to @hughl87 winning the last wood scrap challenge (plus it was pretty and functional).
Woodturning is a great way to utilize some of the scraps, if you do, consider going to the turning guild meeting and showing it off too! You can check them out at www.gvwg.ca
The available wood scraps are currently on the cart near the entrance to the shop, as well as on the shelf in the back behind the back wall of the shop. I’ll be consolidating all of them to the shelf behind the back wall soon. More high-quality wood scraps may become available soon; if they do; I’ll be sure to post here.
