Gluing up boards edge-to-edge, is a way of using off-cuts and scrap wood to create beautiful edge-to-edge glued up project stock. In some applications, you may find the "glued up look" more appealing than a single piece of stock. Here's the easy way I did mine, and a completed project totally made from reclaimed stock to prove my point. I had done none of this before, and like I always say, if I can do it, anybody can! Try it, you'll like it!
Finally,,,,, I made that spice rack which I mentioned, on one of my pages. It's custom designed to fill a particular space in our kitchen and it's made from some more of those reclaimed oak boards, which I made my CD case from.

This is an easy project which you can make up quickly for yourself, or as a really nice, usefull gift for a friend.
Here's an easy project for the new woodworker which is also very attractive. It's a functional desk sign which can be used for just about any purpose, be it in your office or on any desk anywhere. I used my router and table saw to make this one, but modifications can be made to make this project, with the simplest of tools. Give it some stain and a nice finish and everyone will know where they've arrived.
