When working with wood in Kansas City, it’s almost inevitable that you’ll have some leftovers after you finish a project. Many people will simply toss these leftovers. However, this is a huge waste, especially when considering the fact that you can use your wood leftovers for other purposes. The following are a few ideas for how you can use your project leftovers:

  • If you have paint stirrers left over, then assemble them into a grid. You can then use this grid in order to elevate planters on your deck or porch space, thereby preventing stains and rot.
  • If you need to hang something heavy on your wall, then you can create a cleat using wood flooring scraps. Just cut two pieces to length and make sure the width is shorter than the object you’re hanging.
  • If you have a leftover wood dowel, you can turn it into a curtain rod. Simply drill holes in the ends in order to use cabinet knobs as the ends and cut the dowel to the length you need. Hang it on brackets to hold your curtains.
