I know what those little pieces of wood that comes with canvas are intended for (and that they're called canvas keys), but I've never had need to use them. I keep putting them to one side, sure there should be something I could do with them, other than kindling for the fire.
Stick them onto a canvas for texture or fence posts? Glue them together to create a textured panel? Markers for what I've planted in my veggie plot? They do work for mixing paint and for mark-making, but that still leaves a pile.
What do you do with those little bits of wood that come with a canvas? Leave a comment below to let us know.
