I think I'm a scrap hoarder and need help LOL
For some reason, I can't seem to throw out scraps of wood from my projects.
Big scraps, small scraps, tiny scraps and the newest saving is the shaving from a 1x3 - I'm thinking I can use it as veneer?
The real problem is I actually use some of the scraps as time goes by - for example, I'm now making a french cleat system in my shop and getting rid of the pegboard because I'm tired of the hooks falling out when I take a tool!
So I'm turning my scraps into the hangers for the cleat system.
Some of the uses I've found for the scraps include: risers with screws for finishing, triangles for clamping, dowel pieces for pegboard trays etc.
I now have large buckets of scrap that I've organized according to size (not type) 1x2, 1x3, 1x4, 1/2" ply, 3/4" ply etc.
Am I alone in this endless cycle?
Perhaps an intervention is in order?
