I have a large stack of 1x6 T&G cedar cutoffs. Most are about 16" to 24"
long, and are generally clear lumber.
They're only 5/8" thick, and rough sawn on the back side. A small portion
are also cupped slightly.
In the past, I've ripped off the tongues and grooves, edge glued them into
panels, and planed them smooth on both sides. But those boards were longer,
and it's a lot of work to go through. I usually end up with panels that are
only 1/2" or 3/8" thick.
I'm thinking about gluing them up into panels for some garage cabinet
doors, but the panels would end up kind of small.
Anyway, I would be interested in hearing suggestions of what I could do
with all these cutoffs? I already picked out about half of what I had,
anything with big knots or splits was sent to the firewood pile. But I hate
to just burn wood that is mostly clear like this.
