Im on the way home last night taking my wife back from her doctors appt, and I drive by a home that obviously is having alot of work done.
An enormous pile of junk wood in front, so I stop and while my wife is yelling at me Im embarrassing her, I pick through the pile, and take my free wood cutoffs and some pine and pressure treated with nails in it.
The entire ride home I had to listen to her tell me that homeless people and destitute people do those things.Besides she says, youre going to scratch up your car.
But I love scraps. Someones garbage is my gold.
Why let it end up as land fill. Its not even going into a fireplace to keep someone warm(not the pressure treated for sure).
Call me green.
This is the kind of stuff I use scraps for, since nothing is over 2 feet long, and I adjust the widths to the sizes I have.
I always put something in a picture when I make childrens things so its easy to see the actual size.
Planters, little critters, mostly kid furniture, benches, lounges, whatever sizes I get, Ill cut. Just wanted to share. Anyone know a woman that doesnt mind a junk collector?
The table is actually slices of a 2x4, maybe 8-10 inches wide, I just rip slices.
8 screws each, some brads, some glue, and bingo, I have a gift to bring when I visit someone, and they always seem to appreciate it.(well, most of them, started 2 years ago)
