The book was published in 1983 but it still had some fun ideas and the one that caught my eye was:
We collect newspaper and recycle it at our church as a fund raising programme so there is always a pile of papers collecting in our laundry room. Mostly a disorganized pile of papers. It is just a cool coincidence that the plan surfaced in time for Earth Day.
To fit with the Earth Day theme I made my Stack and Bundle Box from left over materials. I dug around in my shop and found a collection of small pieces of plywood to make a version of this project. Since the wood was left overs I made a stylistic decision to stagger the sides since I didn't want to cut things to the short side length.
Since this is all square corners it is a natural as a circular saw project. I cut the pieces with my circular saw and a straight edge. I have used my 48-inch Empire Bubble Stick ruler for years. I realize that it is not high precision but it is rugged, forgiving and has helped me break down 100's of pieces of sheet stock over the years.
I think that woodworkers are Earth Day people everyday.
