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.

Is the wood treated?

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