Default Using odd pieces up

Got to start using up all the odd size pieces from other projects that are too good to throw out. These are 16x8 and 16x6.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

Hey, those aren't odd sizes, a lot of my work is done with pieces cut to about those sizes. I use pieces smaller than those too.

For me, the odd sizes are usually oddly shaped too. But the generally do get used. When I made my tool stand, then cut it shorter, I used odd pieces where two pieces of plywood butted together. Inside of it, some where used as glue blocks. And, on the outside, just glued on some of the 'artsy' pieces for decoration. Kinda looks like art deco, in a strange sort of way. But it works like a champ.
