Hey all! Today I am taking a challenge… Sawdust Girl’s “Scrap Wood Challenge”. Sandra wanted to see what could be made using ONLY scrap wood…
WELL… my sweet hubby had recently brought home this pile of rough lumber… it was in pretty rough shape… it was PERFECT for what I needed!
Some of the lumber still had stamps from the mill. I loved it, so I let them stay.
I was running short on rough lumber, so some of my spare 1×3″s got in on my “x” action.
As you can see, this build is a little bit of this, and a little bit of that.
Thank goodness, I hadn’t thrown out all my scraps from applying “faux shiplap” to my walls. It was perfect for what I needed! I used it to plank the inside of my crate.
The last thing it needed was handles, but seeing as this was a “scrap only” challenge, I utilized some leftover jute rope to construct a handle.
The rope was individually too thin for my tastes, so I layered them up!
Too add a little more character, I used a sharpie marker and added my own “stamps” to the outside of the crate.
There you have it folks, my 100% scrap wood project! Check out more ideas in the links below!

This is so awesome Corey, you can’t go wrong with a good crate!! Love it, and especially the stamps!
Thanks so much! I love the look of rough lumber too!
Did you stain it, and if so, with what? Looks like old barnwood – it’s awesome.
It is stained. I started by staining with Jacobean by Minwax. I then sanded. After that I went over it with a gray stain!
Do you have the sizes of wood cuts or any plans on it?
