It’s amazing how something incredibly beautiful can come from things we label as trash or scrap. Take this end table as an example! It hasn’t come from a high-end furniture shop. In fact it’s made from bits of scrap timber that 99% of us would trash. Just think of all those offcuts you’ve binned! Heck, I’ve probably discarded enough to make a thousand tables like this 🙁

The only bought materials for this table are the legs and the felt pads under them. Everything else is easily found in your workshop or the nearest building site!

From scrap to an expensive looking piece of furniture! Next time you’re done with a timber project, think twice about throwing away those offcuts you thought were too small to build anything with.
