    Scrap no more.

    Beautiful wood Chas! Love the wavy grain effect - reminds me of the old tie-dyed art of the 60's! Nice!

    Following Chas's example (literally, same scrap box, same timber yard) another dollar's worth


    Ash (I think) complete with worm holes.

    At least some things are cheap over here
