Today is a good day, and it’s only 6:00am
Just this morning picked up two small boxes of leftover cherry hardwood flooring cutoffs. They are 2-6 inches long, with a couple 2-footers. I got them through my local FreeCycle organization. I had put out a “wanted” poster for leftover hardwood flooring, fully expecting to get some oak, but the first response I had was for 3/4” t&g cherry!
I don’t really know what I’ll do with them yet. Absolute worst case, I’ll make woodchips and use it in my barbecue as a smoker. Best case, I can turn them into boxes. Maybe even one of those 3-D puzzles… I just stuffed them into my car when I picked them up, so I did not get a good chance to look them over, but I’m sure I’ll think of something!
Having had such a positive experience looking for wood, I can only recommend it to other small hobby workers
