    Wood Gloat

    I inherited an old wooden hot tub when my brother passed away, It had a plastic liner so the water never was on the wood. It would be more expensive to get it working than what it was worth.

    I was going to have the 1-800-got junk come and pick it up, but they wanted over $200, so I decieded to try to take it apart it turns out the wood sides are 4/4 Clear heart tongue & groove redwood. So now I have about 45 3'long redwood 1x4's.

    Way to go on the recycling Dan. Now it looks like that could make a nice piece of deck furniture or perhaps some benches or chairs. Summers coming soon i hope.
    cheers
