Among my favorite things to do in woodturning is making something from scrap. There's something inherently fascinating about the challenge of seeing how small a piece I can make and what I can achieve with scrap wood that might otherwise be discarded.  So last year I started selling these boxes full of great usable material for pen blanks, small turnings, ornaments, even small hollow forms . . . and they're priced at current weight well below (about 40-50% or more) the current weight cost of whole burls.   

   

Pieces I'm making from cutoffs . . . Left is Russian Olive Burl and right is a small gummy Vasticola burl I recently cut illustrating how I try to maximize use of the material. I should be able to get at least 7 pieces from this burl.

This is about the actual size, perhaps a bit larger, of the piece above left on the glue block
