There Is No Such thing as Scrap Wood

I have long said the only scrap wood is wood you throw away. After watching a video where they were cutting out knots from the wood to make jewelry I am not sure that is true. It always irritates me when I see someone in a video talking about how they made their project from​ scraps. Double this irritation when it's some expensive wood I can't buy in my area.

I have a box of small pieces in my shop. My grandson, Odin,  found them and immediately began to drag the box toward the door. "Where are you going?" I asked. "I take to living room." He said. So I gave him a hand getting the heavy box into the living room where he began to go through the box sawing things like "Look at this one!"  Once he had them all in the floor he began building castles.

Not scrap, blocks for building castles. Even at 3 Odin knows this.
