Creative ideas for offcuts

When cutting timber or board to size, you usually end up with assorted offcuts. We put together a collection of creative ways to use offcuts for quick and easy DIY projects for a home.

A sheet of 16mm SupaWood costs between R800 to R900 at your local Builders Warehouse (depending on your location) for a piece of board that is 2.7 metres long and 1.8 metres wide. That's a big piece of board. And when you have this cut for projects, you usually end up with an assorted collection of offcuts. The same applies to laminated pine shelving or planks.

Since you paid for a full piece of board, it makes sense to make use of the entire board. Here's a collection of ideas that we put together where you can use these offcuts for various quick and easy DIY projects.
