Last week I played with the scraps and made some scrappy shapes.
These are nothing new to wood workers or the internet, but I did have fun making them.
This method is quicker because you do not have to wait for glue to dry. However, it didn't feel as secure and I missed joining a few small pieces so I had to join them afterwards.
Because I sell these and I don't trust glue, I secured some of the pieces with screws. I could use the nail gun too, but I didn't have short enough nails.
