25 Scrap Wood Projects to Make and Sell

Hi creative friends! If you’ve landed here on this post then you’re our kind of person, a DIYer like ourselves looking for ways to repurpose (and possibly make some money on the side). We hope you’ll find plenty of inspiration with this round up of creative scrap wood projects to make and sell.

Where to Find Scrap Wood

Let’s start by talking about where to find scrap wood. The obvious answer is to just use wood leftover from other DIY projects you’ve done which was the case for us when we made this silly bathroom sign and this towel rack from wood pallets used to package a vanity for my cozy, contemporary bathroom makeover. Before discarding any leftover wood scraps or wood pallets, consider how and what else can be made with it.

Alternatively, searching your local marketplace is another great resource for scrap wood. Many people are looking to get rid of scrap wood by either giving it away for free or selling it at a cheap price. In fact, I picked up someone’s leftover plywood to make this DIY cornhole board game last Summer.
