How to make something from nothing, well, almost nothing! If, like most of us, you have a pile of leftover wood scraps stashed away in your shop, you'll rejoice over Derek Jones' book, Woodworking from the Scrap Pile. Now, at long last, a book packed with great ideas for turning that trash heap into treasure!
20 useful projects made from odds and ends. These made-from-scrap projects will not only clean up your shop, but provide satisfying work that results in useful items for your home, office, garden--or as nicely made gifts. Projects include: wooden salad serving forks, serving platter, and meat tenderizer that would cost a pretty penny in a specialty shop, along with a letter rack, tool caddy, cute bird house, and more.
Show and tell instructions, tips for all skill levels. Each clever project is explained in clear, straightforward terms, with step-by-step photos that "show and tell" exactly what to do. And, whatever your abilities, there are plenty of projects for you-- and opportunities to turn little bits and pieces into beautiful accessories like those in high-end shops.
