For those that resaw their own wood, what do you do with the odd piece. It seems that whatever thickness I start with (4/4,5/4,8/4, you get the idea) I end up sawing an odd number of pieces. Does anyone have a known use for these? Besides bindings, linings and kindling? I always sem to get an odd number of boards.

Every now and then, it's nice to have a spare side.

Contrasting laminations if you make laminated necks, side purflings if you make a stick to cut bindings off of, headplates and heel caps. Wooden pickguard perhaps?

Hmm, wonder if anyone would bid on a set of 4-5 unmatched back/side pieces...

Sometimes when resawing I wind up with the odd piece too thick for a side but too thin for sawing into two sides. If a suitable species it can be cut into fingerboards.
