    The school where I work part time had to replace the gym floor as there was mold under the flooring. Everything from the main gym floor to the change rooms were tore out and replaced. The seats in the change rooms were maple planks which I got to bring home. A mechanical room had a platform in it as well and brought home the 2x6s and plywood from there. In all there was:

    7-9 ft 5- 6 ft 2-12ft 2x8 maple planks

    8- 4x8 sheets of 3/4 plywood construction grade

    12- 2 x 8 spruce
    The contractors were going to throw it out so thought I would recycle it.

    Can anyone tell me how you tell the difference between hard and soft maple?

    As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...

    I would make the shed 1" less than the size permits are required for. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH SPACE....

    I shrink wrap all my puzzles. It is the best method I have found. I do not use a cardboard backer as some do. I use shrink wrap bags that I get from Amazon or Ebay. 8" x 12" will fit 95% of the puzzles I make.

    To use the bags you will need a sealer. I have one very similar...
