Ed Bouvier discussed the riving and building of his saw. 

Bill Zeman showed the tray he built with wood from his scrap box. [I could use the wood from his scrap box.] He also offered a challenge to others to do the same. If you think about it, many of us have small pieces of wood that are too good to discard!
