    Default 6mm Mahogany surplus project

    Hi All,

    I am just finishing a glued lapstrake rowboat and have a lot of offcuts of 6mm mahogany plywood. I'm looking for some little projects to fill my time and use this excess. Any ideas, plans, etc.? Thanks. Saul

    Bird boxes.
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    Just put it in the corner along with your other scrap material. The highest and best use will eventually reveal itself. Forcing the issue will only lead to disappointment.

    By the way... sometimes one will have to wait a long time. I've a sheet of 3/4" ribbon grain mahogany ply that I've kept for over thirty years. Still, no hurry.
