Recycling Your Woodworking – scrap wood projects

I start my creations of art first by reviving the old lumber. Next, I will sand certain areas and make sure no sharp points are sticking out that may harm someone if they come in contact with it. I do this by sanding and using glue to hold stubborned areas down.

12. First is make sure the deck is on your table saw and sitting in the runners and with your blade all the way down, turn on your table saw and slowly raise the blade till the teeth of your blade are sticking up about 1 tooth high then push the sled away from you till the blade is about 2″ from the edge of the deck. DO NOT CUT IT ALL THE WAY THROUGH YET!!

6. Now glue 2 boards together to make 2 handles 4 ½” high x 27″ long x 1 ½” thick

Furthermore, I also find myself attracted to woodworking as there are just so many things you can do with wood. And it’s one of the easiest material to work on when you are planning to build furniture.

The best tip I can give you is “measure twice, cut once”. To ensure you make your cuts on the correct side of your lines always mark the scrap side. A good plan can help you get the most out of your raw materials and minimise your scrap pile. Most woodworkers have a scrap pile, “I’m sure that offcut will come in useful for my next project” you think to yourself.

The Easy Fix

–Boards are warped: Warped lumber can leave a gap in the joint, preventing the flush union we need for a solid joint between two boards. Wood screws are strong, but they may not be strong enough to bring warped boards together.
