    disposing of all my scrap plywood

    now that Ive finished all the drawers, I decided its time to stop saving all those 8x10, 10x12, 12x14 etc....small pieces of 1/4 plywood.
    I kept enough in case I need some box bottoms, but sooner or later its time to purge.
    I was looking over the internet the other day, good idea, cut all the little pieces into lawn art pieces.
    Halloween is right around the corner, so I cut up a bunch, made ghosts for the lawn, used all the tied up 2x4 small pieces that was going into the trash for stakes.
    I only have white outdoor paint, so they are all going to be ghosts.

    heres one to give an example, better than tossing it all into the trash.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    Great use of scraps Allen, I may have to "borrow" this idea with our halloween party coming up.
