What to do with leftover wood

therealdealMay 2, 2011

Hello everyone. I just finished building a bunch of wood garden raised beds. I have 24 leftover pieces I cut from a some 1X8's that are 1X8X2 24 pieces that are 8" wide and about 2 feet long. Some are a couple inches longer. I am trying to think of what to do with these. I would love to build something but cannot think of what to do. Maybe even a project I can have my son help me with.

Thanks much for any suggestions as I am at a loss.

Stools and short occasional tables for the porch, deck, etc.

Is the wood treated?

Bird houses, bat houses. Seal the insides to keep treated wood off of the critters.

Not if it's treated wood.
