various scrap wood in a pile with a saw

From every project I’ve ever made, I always have a small amount of leftover lumber or scrap wood from cuts that needed to be made. I have a feeling that I’m not alone in that category. Many times, those small pieces or scraps sit in the bottom of my woodpile for months or even years until I find a need for them. Eventually, I’ll work on a project that needs a small piece of walnut, oak, pine, etc. and that’s when I am thankful I kept those small pieces of lumber.  But! Those wood scraps don’t always need to sit on the shelf until you need them for the next big build.

There are simple and functional projects that can be done without a large time commitment. These beginner woodworking projects make great use of your scrap lumber.  Here are ten things to make out of scrap wood: 

1. Mountain Wall Art

I built this mountain wall art project with leftover pine from the dining room table I made last summer.  This entire project was about 1 1/2 board feet of pine and can easily be completed in an afternoon.

scrap wood mountain

2. Scrap Wood Coasters

Making a wooden coaster set can be done in under an hour.  Not only do they stand out as a beautiful accessory to your table, but they also protect that table.  If you have a dining table or coffee table that you built yourself or just a table that you love, you’ll want to protect it with a set of quality coasters.

scrap wood coasters

3. Scrap Wood Cutting Board

A wooden cutting board or serving tray is an easy project that can be completed in one afternoon.  If you have a board foot or so of scrap hardwood laying around, this is a great project or a cool gift.

4. Handmade Cribbage Board

With a small piece of scrap lumber, you can easily build a handmade cribbage board.  You create a cribbage board with a drill press, cordless power drill, or hand drill.  You also purchase a small cribbage board template that will make your board look like it was professionally done.

5. Handheld Bottle Opener

There is always a need for a handheld bottle opener around the house.  This custom bottle opener is a simple tool that can be used every day and everyone at your party will love.

6. Simple Chisel or Hand Tool Organizer

Have some long cutoffs that are just too skinny to make anything else from? Attach them to the wall to organize your hand tools. This chisel holder is nothing more than two lengths of scrap wood separated with a few spacers. They’re screwed (and not glued) to easily adjust or add dividers.

7. Floating Shelves

You can make these floating shelves with leftover 2 x 4s and scrap pine.  Each shelf can be completed in less than an afternoon and they can be stained to match any existing wood in the room.

8. Smartphone Speaker

There are hundreds or even thousands of tutorials available online to help you make a speaker amplifier.  There are varying levels of difficulty, but each of the speakers can be built from your scrap woodpile.

9. Scrap Wood Candle Holder

You can find tea light candles for less than $5.  With a piece of scrap lumber and a large drill bit, you can quickly make a stylish candle holder.

10. Smartphone Charging Block

A leftover pallet spacer becomes a simple and rustic way to charge your phone. Grab the how-to here.

All of the small scrap wood projects above are fun and easy projects that can be completed with scrap wood.  Many of the projects are great beginner projects for yourself, or if you’re having a fun DIY afternoon with a friend, significant other, or a youngster. Remember – with creativity, it’s not just firewood.
