I love this. Instructables user wholman has gathered together a bunch of scrap wood from “dumpsters, back alleys, vacant lots, abandoned buildings, recycling yards, and architectural salvage centers” and laminated it together using all-thread. Then he’s very carefully smoothed and polished only one side of the finished block, leaving the underside rough to show off the process. Beautiful.
