  • The mother load

    Not far from my house they are building a new house and instead of using plywood for the roof they used 3/4 x 12" Pine boards. I stopped by there today and asked if what I thought was a scrap pile was and indead it was a scrape pile the guys said take all you want take it all we are just going to burn it. Now its not the best wood but man I got a truck load from 2' to 8' long by 12" wide what a wonderful day.

      GREAT SCORE on the free wood. Now if you had a picture of the pile to add, you'd have the perfect "gloat"!

            Awesome find.
            It never hurts to ask.

            If anyone is looking for intarsia wood, check with the local highschool. There is tons of it in the scrap bin.

            If you feel guilty taking it, offer to do some scrolling demos.

              Hey SSG - Thanks for the offer!
              And, as one of my "mentors" used to say ""There ain't nuthin' wrong with a good gloat now and again. Keeps the rest of us alert looking for our own."

              I see a planer, a bunch of pipe clamps (for glue ups), and a band saw in your future to do justice to that stash!

                  We did. I only went $40 over budget. I got a 73” x 12” x 3/4” curly cherry for $55. Just needs to be run through the sander and cut to size. It’s a pinkish cherry and is so pretty. A piece of deep red redwood, 2 pieces of walnut each about 12” wide. Good haul.

                  I have harvested some very interesting specimens in the last 10 years. Bookmatched ash that was absolutely beautiful; red oak, maple, some spalted "something" and more.
                  But since most of the cross boards on pallets are 3 to 4 nches wide and 3/8" to 5/8", I have few uses for...

                  I have an implanted spinal cord stimulator to help with back pain. They also have warnings about welding. I could not get one when I was working in an electric furnace steelmaking shop as the electrodes were over 1000 amps and volts. I have also decided to stay away from welding as I just do not...
