scrape wood router projects?

My bin is getting full, anyone have any interesting projects to do with scrape wood and the router?

I've attached one I've done using the table saw and drill press but since this is a router fourm maybe some has a router project???????

By the way I'm making some of these to sell so don't steal paint design.....

It was fun and a good learning experence, I did three of them out of scrap wood and it takes 41 strips to make each one so I had to make a helping hand for the table saw to do the thin strips a little faster.

Also I should mention the kite was adjusted to a more flat profile for the picture. In real life there are more twists so it spins better, and while it is spinning it looks even better.

BTW that is a type "or s/b ro" not a new spelling for project.........

Depends on the size of wood but I make serviette holders (I think you lot call them napkins ;) ) and pots stands .... pretty simple glue up a couple of pieces of wood into a square, rout a profile on the edge and glue dowels as uprights that trap a larger dowel to hold the serviettes down. The pot stands are just a frame (similar to a door), mortice and tennoned together, with a piece of ply rebated into the back to glue a ceramic tile to. Both of these are easy and quick. I'll take some pics tomorrow and try and post them

Along this same line I was wondering if wood from pallets would be good for any projects? I notice we always have a pile of them sitting by the dumpster at work and the wood doesn't look that bad from 200 yards away. :)

Most of the time the pallets are picked up and reused, they are worth $$ to most companies so it is best to ask first. The major problem I can see is all the possible imbedded junk in the wood, nails, rocks, gravel, grease, toxic spillage, and metal filings. I guess a closer look might be in order.

Thanks! I like the idea of a clock I might just make something like that, the "A" might even be a good idea as I have an Anne, Aaron and Aurora in the family.

The Serviette holder also looks interesting, by the way how is that said, it looks French?

Yeah the clock was my first attempt at angle half laps (which I managed to do on the router table). It didn't turn out too badly I think - just don't look too close!!

Yip serviette is pretty much said the way it looks - serv-i-et. It's just what we call napkins.

I would like to see the finished result if you get around to the clocks.
