    Your stash would probably make some beavers very happy; like an all-you-can-eat buffet.

    Instead of selling the pieces for pennies on the dollar you should have someone make a coffin/ headstone for you with all the wood pieces you love.

    This reminds me of all the ladies who buy fabric at the quilt shops. Always adding to their stashes between projects, and getting new fabric because they can't bear to use what's in their stashes. :)

    I've been binge watching some of your vids….excellent material. I don't know if you still have the block of walnut that has been there for 5 years now…a deserving and challenging project in my opinion would be to turn a pepper or spice mill out of it.

    How about making a display piece with a collection of pieces of different woods? Then you get to keep your favourite bits intact while still making something out of them.

    Make an end table, but add some designs and some nice old fashioned legs. With a nice cherry maple stain.

    … oh. I'm a little disappointed. I was so sure he was going to stop with one of the wood pieces and make something out of it. I was getting so excited.

    Wait, how are you holding the piece of walnut if you already used it in the cup. Ö

    He can use the to decorate walls. Tell/ Ask a decorator to use them for decoration, themes.

    you should make a horn-shaped mug with some wood with a really gnarly grain

    You are not alone in this Peter 🙂
    I do this with fabric… an the hoarding startet when my mum brought a couple of beautiful fabric examples back home for me. That was ~25 years ago and I still have them.

  23. Richmond Boswell

    November 22, 2016 at 11:56 am

    lol. Then make something with them!

    Pedantic correction on the ironwood species being the only ones to sink in water: Cocobolo (Dalbergia [Rosewoods] genus) sinks quite swiftly, as do many samples of ebony.

    I am the same way with fabric- not the same since I can always just purchase more if available or rip out all my stitches, but i would be so sad without my hoard.

    I'm suprised you haven't gone for turning beer tap handles either with epoxy projects or with all of those interesting blanks

    My question to you Mr. Peter Brown, ShopTime, is "Are you sure it's the projects you feel unworthy of the wood or yourself (your skills)?" You ARE EXTREMELY TALENTED and SKILLED!

    With that piece of walnut you could do an old timey clock, it would be kinda unique since the shape isn't perfect

    I used to only watch YouTube for gaming videos and comedy, and this past week I've watched these videos almost exclusively. I'd say this channel is as compelling and funny as what I used to watch. And I know nothing about any of this stuff. oh well, still going to keep watching

    Peter I collect things also, like rocks, glass, metal, and wood. I tumble the rocks and glass. Use the metal to reinforce anything and everything if necessary, but the wood that is my vice I am so bad I will even take apart old furniture that has seen better days just so I can keep that piece of teak wood, or that piece of mahogany or walnut even have a few cherry pieces. My most recent projects has been to take some of that old wood. and drill holes and glue pieces of tumbled glass in to the holes so that I can use them as post lites. What I am really wanting to make though are wooden light houses. But I seem to get lost in the process. So I wondered if you could make a video of a light house light for the yard.

    Hi Peter, My name is Brendan I’m from South Africa. I’m a wood worker and graphic designers so your tube is right up my alley and I just love what you put out. Having watched this tube I have an idea for the chunk of wood that comes around about the 4:35 mark. If you haven't already used it then it is the ideal shape for a mantel piece clock. Now heres the interesting part because its not asymmetrical have a look at furniture and styling from the Cat in the Hat books and movie. You could make a really cool whimsical clock with curved bubble type surfaces and wacky fixtures. Just an idea.

    I ordered a set of polyhedral dice made from an old Jack Daniels barrel. Gotta love boozy scented wood.

    Make a Picasso style vintage radio out of the walnut!

    It'd be awesome if you made a wavy Chessboard like the Cutting Board. And you could turn your own designs for the pieces.

    Well you could always make your wood hoard into a headstone….too dark?

    I have the same problem hoarding leather scraps. Im a leather worker and I can never bear to throw my scrap out because I always tell myself there's something I can make from it. So I know what you're talking about.

    I'm not a wood hoarder I'm an exotic wood sample collector. I have a fine collection in my shop.

    November 22, 2016 at 11:56 am

    I'm the same way with fabric. I can't bring myself to throw out even the smallest scraps
