Stop looking for the easiest scrap wood project, because you just found it!
A farmhouse style cutting board is so simple, rustic, and customizable!
Our garage will either fit all our woodworking benches and equipment, salvage furniture, wood, doors, shutters, windows, lawn and garden paraphernalia, the shop vac, a generator, and all the kids stuff, or 2 SUVs. We park on the street because that’s the logical thing to do… no one parks in a woodshop.
We do lots of building projects, and end up with rogue scraps all over the place. When this scrap wood project popped up with my friends, I figured I could build a house with it all. I’m kidding, I made a farmhouse style cutting board for my scrap wood project!
Join us on the last Friday of each month for a different Creative Bloggers Challenge!
The rules are simply that the project has to fit the challenge theme, which will be something different to inspire you each month!

So… I need to know: Is anyone else’s woodshop an organizational nightmare? My favorite thing is asking for something, and it’s in a sea of organized chaos. Am I all alone in the sea of organized chaos?
Let’s make this scrap wood project, shall we?

All I used for this scrap wood project was some leftover pine from signs I made. I used a paint brush handle to trace the handle and rounded the corners.
I used a jigsaw to cut the shape…
Then I hit it with a hammer and screw driver, especially on the edges. Distressing and all the faux aging processes! Once it was cleaned off, I gave it a touch of Minwax Early American stain, and some white furniture wax I had leftover from waxing these stools.
Farmhouse Style Cutting Board: Easy Scrap Wood Project
I enjoy this basket on my trash and recycling holder, we started with Ana White’s plans, and customized it to fit both the larger sized trash and recycling cans.
We are going to replace these shelves with bigger barn wood shelves above for a microwave and some cook books and the things that are already up there. Either the open shelving, or a hutch on top, but I’m leaning toward a few bigger shelves so I can go picking for corbels and things…
I wouldn’t use this for food because it’s not food-grade wax, but to just look pretty in a basket I think it’s perfect!
Oh wait, I said I wouldn’t use it for food. Whoops. It’s just for 2 pieces of a lemon. Shh!
I want to make a few more in some different colors and sizes to fill up this basket, or hang on the wall like a gallery.
But, I think we should organize the wood shop first.
Got scraps? We do! See what we did with them!
