Default New one from the cut off pile

With the shop down for the remodel I had a bit of time to build up another slab from the cut off bin. SWMBO decided it would make a pencil and note storage box for her desk, hence the attached. The dividers were purposely left tall to support envelopes, note pads etc. Unfortunately, the slab was not big enough for the end pieces so those are from some old bread board pieces.

Looks good . A good way to use up odds and ends. Most of the time all those odds and ends aren't the right size, gluing them together in random patterns gives you a one of a kind item.

Good job.

LEARNING - the decision you make to know and
understand more about some thing.

TIME - the thing that gets in the way of learning.

Even though you are using scraps, start trying for tighter joints as a habit, and sand away the planer marks.

Nice assortment of wood!

I really like the way the rays in the quarter sawn oak blend into the stock above it!

Appreciate the feedback from one and all.

The only trimming I do is relative to the width or length of a given piece so the joints overlap. Once the glue up is finished my neighbor runs it through his drum sander until the piece is uniform in thickness . I then use an RO sander to finish it off. so I'm not sure what "planer marks" your seeing Joe.

I certainly agree the joints could be tighter, particularly on the ends. Unfortunately the end pieces had a slight warp to.

Thanks again.

I have a 16-32 Performax drum sander. I can go from 40 to 180 grit. A rough grit can leave marks like knicked planer blades also.
There are definite lines that are not the grain crossing from one board to another.
Please understand this isn't meant to be a put down, just a critique.

Understand the comment and no offense taken. The drum sanding was done with 80 grit and then I skipped to 120 on a RO and stopped there. A lesson learned and that is one of the keys to this forum.

Thanks again.

Beautiful use of wood, very utilitarian, and you had fun doing it! That's what counts!
