Got tired of everything on my garage shelves getting covered with dust from my workshop, so I built some new enclosed storage cabinets to solve the problem. I used 3/4 plywood for the carcass and shelves of the individual cabinets and built their doors using 3/4x4 cedar for the frames with 1/4 x 4 pine tongue and grove centers for an overall rustic appearance. The overall dimensions are 12' 2 wide x 6' high consisting of four 36 wide x 15 deep individual cabinets. Each of the cabinets are individually anchored to the wall then screwed together. One of the cabinets, where we keep our winter golf jackets, clothing, etc. is lined with aromatic eastern red cedar closet tongue and grove planks (smells great).
I've been getting ready for our annual 3 day show https://www.atwoodfallfest.org and knee deep in saw dust for a couple months. I'm pretty sure that when someone ( even me ) says that they are using up scrap and cut offs for projects, they failed to mention that it takes twice as much planning and preparation to make some of it work. The easiest use of cut offs for me is cutting boards and here are a few that probably won't last too long. Picture #1 and #2 are deliberate planning edge grain boards and not scrap Picture #3 is left over edge grain from several planned boards Picture $4 is a multitude of egde grain cut offs Picture $5 is edge grain cut offs Picture #6 is edge grain cut offsThanks for looking
