It would be great if I could use every square inch of the wood that I have. Alas, when cutting out my craving blanks, there are always those pesky corners left over. When I use to have a wood burning stove I used them for kindling to start fires and burnt a lot, but when I went to gas, they began to pile up. I tried to sell them by the sack but didn't have any luck. People just weren't interested, even when I offered to give them away...go figure? So I let them build up and build up, finally ending in throwing ALOT away. What a waste! Now I take the pieces and trim the sharp edges off so I can use them more easily for small carvings or inserts. If I get some oak or other nutwood, I save those pieces to use when I am cooking something on my smoker. They sure do add flavor to beef or pork! Too bad that basswood doesn't work as well in the smoker.... Anyway, they still seem to build up....what do you do with yours?
