Nice! too much waste these days in my opinion. oooh a planer/Joiner, wish I had the space and money...Very nice - now I know to always save my scraps! And could be a good excuse to get a new thickness planer...
The net effect would not necessarily be heavier, but it would be stronger. The face boards could be resawn, or planed down, to 1/4” or less for the thin ones, up to maybe 1/2” for the thick ones, and then glued to the center board on both sides. Wrap the whole assembly with solid wood edging. That would be for the interior door.Why add the extra weight if it's not needed? Plus it looks great from behind
Mahogany, wow! good find!Very nice job and the finish came out terrific as well. Most people would be hard press to tell it is made from scrap.
I think we need to change that name from "scrap lumber" to something like "secondary project lumber" or "renewal lumber" Think of the things one can build with a little imagination using just the excess lumber laying around the shop.
With a little bit of effort, one can often find really nice pallets that can be repurposed with no one the wiser.
I read somewhere that depending on where it is coming from, often Kubota equipment is shipped on pallets made from mahogany. It does not look like much as a pallet but after being planed and finished looks quite beautiful.
