    Recycled redwood source

    I am looking for a source for recycled redwood and/or cedar. The pieces do not need to be any bigger then say a 1' long x 4" wide x 1/2 or less thickness. These are rustic picture frames. I found one source on the wrong coast. Would like some on the east coast if possible.

    Here on the east coast one place to get pieces of redwood the size you want are old fencing. I've gotten some redwood that way. Talk to fence companies, and next time they replace a redwood fence most are happy to let you pieces of it. btw, if you're willing to pay a few bucks, some will even sell you peices of redwood from their fence stock, but it ain't cheap.
