I salvaged a number of old kitchen cupboard doors destined for the skip a few months ago and hung on to them wondering if they could be used somewhere, finally got fed up falling over them and moving from place to place so cut them up. They were well past their sell by date and unfortunately the raised centre panels are veneered chipboard bu managed around 60 lengths at 42 x 22mm ranging from 300 - 750 mm plus a few pen blanks and a pile of 1/2 round trim bits 20 x 10mm which are probably useless and will sit there unused though I know if I chuck them I'll find a use next week. :lol:

I just need to think of a little project now and have a pile of centre panels to add to the bonfire on 5th Nov. ( Unless I can find a use for them :wink: )

Your first photo reminded me of this photo, which was oak drawer parts for a little bedside chest of drawers I made a while ago.





It rather surprised me how many separate bits of wood it needed, but they were all small and almost all reclaimed timber. A very enjoyable project too.
