Immediate thoughts:

At 6 hours per batch at level 3, this means that one can make 4 bushels of wood per day, 2 at level 1... after accounting for the cost of scraps.

I see no situation in which you aren't better off just harvesting new wood unless you are using this to farm workshop skill.

I don't know about other workshops, but I'd imagine they have the same problem if we are looking at similar time scales.

When you click on a scrap item in the market for information, it still says: "Item Does not exist or is not yet available."

These recipes were added as players had scraps from recycling that they wanted to turn back into items. If you have a suggestion on how you want to see it improved please feel free to put one in. I think the logic is that they don't want to go back out and get the original items. Of course, it will always be easier to get new items than to recycle.

I mean I'd have the items be used in repair shops. I had thought that was the entire idea.

They will be able to be used in that manner once repair shops are rolled out. Until then, this is an alternative that was requested.
