wasting materials has never sat right with me. one of my favorite challenges is trying to figure out what i can do with the leftovers from any project that i am working on.
i decided this year for the holidays that i was going to make cutting boards for everyone. they are highly functional and people really seem to enjoy them. the one in the picture is a peice of Sapele, two small chunks of White Oak, and Purple Heart. All these scraps got rescued from the camp fire. i think this worked out much better.
