Scrap/Off-cut Wood Projects You Can Sell

Scrap/Off-cut Wood Projects You Can Sell

I’ve been looking at projects I can build with Off-cut/Scrap Wood. As woodworkers we generate a fair amount of scrap wood and throwing it out is heartbreaking. In this video, I consider bentwood lamination as an option for scrap wood projects.

    I watch this video for the first time a couple months ago and I found myself actually going to it the last four days like it was drawing me in to watch again or something LOL just watched it again for like the third time today. This is seriously so awesome it’s something simple it looks to us watching but I know it takes time and effort may be a little bit of math but definitely some measuring. I just thank you very very much for your cool ideas, you’d be amazed how much little things like this inspire people like me. Thank you so much. It’s awesome and I think the little glass lamp shade goes perfect with it.

    Using a bandsaw to cut the strips saves a lot of material. But turned out as a great project for using up some scrap bin materials. I use most of mine for jigs and fixtures.

  4. Alisa Meche on April 5, 2022 at 6:37 pm

    Could you make this exact light with LED and a clear plastic cover over them as well?

  5. Tim Henry on April 5, 2022 at 6:37 pm

    Good idea.

  6. Hatty Maines on April 5, 2022 at 6:38 pm

    that table is a masterpiece

  7. Joyce Baskind on April 5, 2022 at 6:38 pm

    I think that the lamp is a brilliant idea! It reminds me of Art Deco a little bit. If I saw this in a store, I might be tempted to buy it. A lot would depend on if I had room for it.

  8. edwardsaladhands on April 5, 2022 at 6:41 pm

    So did u cut out a groove in the back to fit the wire in?

  9. kcb3rd on April 5, 2022 at 6:43 pm

    Now THAT, is worth making!! Thanks.

  10. Kim Grannygoodhag on April 5, 2022 at 6:44 pm


  11. Michael Goldsmith on April 5, 2022 at 6:45 pm

    I think that lamp holder being metal should had an earth wire attached!

  12. greg laduke on April 5, 2022 at 6:47 pm

    hello thank you for the vid can any one tell me the best place to get the lamp parts that are used here?

  13. David Dapper on April 5, 2022 at 6:48 pm

    Love that workshop good job

  14. Julian Greaves on April 5, 2022 at 6:48 pm

    Great little project bru. Loved it 👍👍

  15. Sean Grigsby on April 5, 2022 at 6:49 pm

    That is a great idea and a great video! I second that belt Sander jig comment from the other guy! Awesome idea

  16. Ron Fontenot on April 5, 2022 at 6:49 pm

    Bravo!! Well Done.

  17. Timothy Atwell on April 5, 2022 at 6:51 pm

    I liked the idea of laminating with scrap wood. I don’t have access to good wood because of price and availability so I use a lot of scrap or cut-off pieces. Great project and I also don’t really like exposed wiring on furniture.

  18. Constantin Trudel on April 5, 2022 at 6:51 pm

    Love it!!! Really cool idea, I also don’t like to waste wood, especially not at the price of lumber these days. I will definitely borrow your idea ;). Thanks for the share and keep the great content coming!

  19. Theo Kleinhans on April 5, 2022 at 6:51 pm

    Have you ever heard of using Abranet sanding paper? It is way better and it is longer lasting than ordinary sanding paper. Another thing. Have you ever tried using the Kregg jig to make doors or even drawers.

  20. Michael H. on April 5, 2022 at 6:51 pm

    The lamp turned out very nice!

  21. linda richardson on April 5, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    Very smart and creative!

  22. Hi-Gain Guitar Channel on April 5, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    I’m blown away!

  23. Dennis Shearme on April 5, 2022 at 7:06 pm

    will this work for any type of wood, i am very new to this hobbie?

  24. Island Wills on April 5, 2022 at 7:07 pm

    I think i might try this project myself, though i plan on avoiding the handsawing and hand sanding lol. not sure where i will get the hardware for the light though… maybe from a second hand store and break it down.

  25. Kevin Stuart on April 5, 2022 at 7:08 pm

    Dude your workbench is wizard! That was like something out of a James Bond movie.

  26. Cookinitmax on April 5, 2022 at 7:08 pm

    Now that’s the way to work a small area of space my friend.
    I loved it when you flip the Miter Saw over it was like taking a Rifle out for the first dear kill.

  27. Mark Grady on April 5, 2022 at 7:09 pm

    If that’s all the scrap you have. Your just a beginner. Lol

  28. chris gavin on April 5, 2022 at 7:10 pm

    Nice one mate, i like it.

  29. MIke Rumsey on April 5, 2022 at 7:10 pm

    Very cool idea

  30. Tim H on April 5, 2022 at 7:10 pm

    This is my first time seeing your videos and I am subscribing. I’m also jealous of your workshop! Very nice for a limited space.

  31. JudeTex on April 5, 2022 at 7:12 pm

    If I had money for that equipment, I would just buy a lamp.

  32. Wolf of Easy Street on April 5, 2022 at 7:14 pm

    Very nice. What kind of wood did you use? Is there any risk with some types of wood for the bend not to keep after some years or months?

  33. Adriaan Buys on April 5, 2022 at 7:15 pm

    Mooi man, Jean! Great om ‘n Saffer op YT te sien. Ek het eers gedink jy’s dalk oorsee, maar die hadida het my reggehelp 😀

  34. Nattering Springs on April 5, 2022 at 7:17 pm

    Beautiful piece of art! And useful, too! New sub.

  35. C. McAnelly on April 5, 2022 at 7:20 pm

  36. Monica Flint on April 5, 2022 at 7:20 pm

    Hey are you South African

  38. patrick dunn on April 5, 2022 at 7:22 pm

    Very cool, I will make a taller one. I have not done any bending yet, but will try this one 😃. Beautiful design, and good job of hiding that wire.

  39. Jeff Faulkner on April 5, 2022 at 7:23 pm


  40. Tom T on April 5, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    I like the project, but sadly I don’t possess enough clamps to build this! Ha!

  41. Lets Go on April 5, 2022 at 7:24 pm

    That was some brave drilling at 11:40. Went right for it :p

  42. Michael Bossenberry on April 5, 2022 at 7:26 pm

    Are you from South Africa?

  46. jesse otero on April 5, 2022 at 7:32 pm

  47. Cee Jay on April 5, 2022 at 7:32 pm
