  • Jack pot yahoooo

    I was driving around yesterday and saw these sitting and not really knowing what I was looking at, I was looking from a ways off I asked the guy if I could have them? he said yeah I going to throw them away any ways. so I said I will be back tomorrow. well to my surprise it is all really grade "A" plywood very few knots. they were made to ship parts on to a construction site. now what on earth am I going to do with them hmm they are all 16" x 32" and the runners are 4x4 cut in half.

    Isn't it funny how we just can't resist free wood. Good luck on coming up with a project. Congrats on the good find.

              I have used runners like that to make several bandsaw boxes...and of course you can always find a use for the plywood...

                  Looks like your going to be very busy. Just watch out for nails and embedded junk that could really screw up the blades on a planer or break the blade of a bandsaw.

                    Free wood is my favorite kind. I noticed that the skids the steel coil come on at work were a lot heavier than the pine and spruce pallets we usually get. I started saving them and found out that the tops are poplar and the runners are ash, hickory and oak. Planed and resawn they make excellent (if narrow) planks. I also have found some really nice poplar and even a little red oak among the rough cuts that are used as dunnage for outgoing steel. A few of my co-workers are always on the look out for any piece of OSB or plywood they can salvage, but no-one besides me is interested in the hardwood.

                      Great find,
                      It'll come in handy for a thousand things. If the wife lets you keep them around long enough to think up uses.

                        Back in my days of collecting antique pottery, I used to carry a a small blacklight unit to check for repairs that were invisible to the naked eye. I never knew that it could detect glue spots. That's a lot neater than using mineral spirits, or waiting until a sealer coat of shellac reveals missed...

                        Being a diet controlled type 2 diabetic, I check my glucose. Checked before my shot on Tuesday it was fine. Checked on Wednesday after a morning walk expecting to see less than 100 and about fainted when it read 158. Every check has been 150 or more since then. Started reading and yes, the shots can...

                        Not yet Jim. The corners of the baskets to appear to be drawn by hand or just a bad copy. The price might go up. Thanks Linda. For some reason I really like doing layered baskets. And my customers like buying them. Bruce read a blacklight shows glue spots. Guess what he bought me from harbor freight...
