I have a few projects in my mind to use up a bunch of fence picket scraps I’ve been storing, here’s one of them. The fence picket scraps are 3 1/2″ wide and various lengths. My Harvest Party is this weekend and I wanted something cuter to put some tin foil trays in. I’d seen something similar on Pinterest a long time ago. These are the large bread tins you use at Christmas time for your give-away banana bread.
The long sides and bottoms are 8″ long and the ends are 5″ long. The fence picket scraps were not wide enough for the bottom piece so I had some scrap siding laying around that happened to be the perfect width. I just cut it to 8″. Then I used some wood glue and my finish nailer (well my 10 year borrowed finish nailer, lol – thanks Wayne!).
Not sure if I’ll stain them or just clear coat them but they will be the perfect size for pickles and hot peppers.
