  • 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!

                  Well ... I am SO glad we tempered our enthusiasm. Show is cancelled. Apparently, things did not go as planned. Maybe next year.
