  • 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!

                  I upgraded back in early winter. I got one with both a solid state as well as hard drive. I couldn't move over my Office 2010 because I'd bought it as a download (which was still functioning just fine for what I used it for) and I never switched it to subscription because of the cost. The old download...

                  I just picked up a couple of new heavy handled bowl gauges. 1/2 inch and 3/8 inch from two friends that have tool supply businesses.
                  Our next Scroll saw club challenge will be segmented scroll saw bowls. I don't sand my bowls, too time consuming, so I will be turning them after glue up.

                  One problem with upgrading was that many of the programs I use are now subscription based. That really frosts my butt I finally accepted the fact that I normally renew my software frequently anyway the cost difference is negligible.

                  I did not go with a solid state drive, probably...

                  Actually, I think mine is more than 10 years old. And what brand would that be? Remember who you’re talking to here about computers.

                  If you buy a new computer you want to get a solid state hard drive. No moving parts to break or wear out....
