For my woodworking projects, I like to whittle butter knives and spoons from juniper wood. The wood shavings smell so wonderful that it would be a shame to just use them for kindling.
I save the fragrant shavings and put them in little homemade bags of thin fabric to use as drawer fresheners. Juniper wood is supposedly good at keeping bugs away, too!
