Default Using scrap wood

Due to health problems, I haven't touched my cnc for 9 months.

While cleaning my shop yesterday, I noticed several pieces of 1/2" & 3/4" thick red oak laying in a box. I started thinking of way to use it rather than throwing on the burn pile. I remembered a Michael Tyler Vectric file that I downloaded, Critter Phone Stands. I had enough scrape to make 12 of these. Since there are several cat lovers in my family, including my wife & daughter, I made 8 cats, 2 rabbits & 2 squirrels. With a very small amount of sanding, some ca glue and clear acrylic spray, they were all done in 3 hours.

My daughter loves her black cat and has it setting on her desk at work. Naturally all of her co-workers want one!

Cute idea. I don't have a CNC but think a scroll saw or thin BS blade might work, just need to do some sanding. I have lots of scrap wood. Originally, they were called projects.
