If you’re looking for a project to use up some of those leftover wood scraps, give this one a try. None of the pieces are very large and the project takes but a few hours to build. The small globe is available at most stationery stores, or you may wish to substitute a small statuette or other item. Projects of simple design such as the book rack are most attractive made of one of the hardwoods such as walnut, teak or even zebrawood.
