Table Center Piece from Scrap Walnut

Here is a quick project with left over scrap. Great gift item that is pretty cool. Length is whatever you want to make it. I just trimmed down some scrap to 3/4 x 3/4". Cut some one inch pieces for in between and glued it up. Ran it through the drum sanders and then moved to finish it.

Beautiful and creative use of scraps. Like walnut and the design and finish is great. A great idea to include in the centerpiece. Great job!

How did you get the smaller pieces glued in. Did you use clamps?

This is delicate. Over clamping here will really mess up the project. Let the glue do the work. The hand clamps were barely adding pressure.

This is how I clamped it. I am sure some of the more experienced members could do this better. But it worked for me.

Here is the pic.

My brother is a big fisherman so I made one for he and his family, but with a little twist.

What a great idea to use leftover stuff. I have some 1" poplar that I used for board and batten. This would be nice in the kitchen.

I really like the fish one. We all have enough scrap to make a few of these I bet.

The more I look at your pieces the more I like them. I might have to come up with a few designs of my own.
