Odds & Ends

We have tons of log bits like these all over the place:

These are left over from the joists. I keep thinking that if I was only a bit craftier, I could make something with these odds & ends. Wood sculpture... signs.... planters... log dollhouse?

If nothing else, that's great burning wood for those quick fires that you don't want to go all night long. So pretty though just to burn ... I'll have to think on it. You could make some pretty neat trays (jewelry, perfume trays, little bread or salad servers) by just putting them in a vice and using a router to dig them out. Maybe? And - It sure is a gorgeous day in the North Country today!

Yup, I agree with Small Pines about the quick fire idea. It's hard to see the exact shape of them, but there has to be something you can do with them! Let us know what you decide!

Book ends. Always book ends. Or door stops, that is.

Firewood... definitely fire wood.

Firewood, carving, wood etching, etc. Curious to see what you come up with.
