Every once in a while I will run across an article where I see the phrase “Scrap Wood”, I’m terribly sorry but in my shop or garage, I definitely “DO NOT” have any Scrap wood. If it isn’t used for Making my wood burnings, it is used for my Christmas ornaments. So is ANY of you have any scrap wood, get ahoad of me and I will let you know where to send it. Thank You Jim Earl

I agree, last year I gave a box of exotic wood pieces to a relative so he could use making birdhouses. I found out he used the wood in his wood stove. A lesson learned.

I’m very Sorry to hear about him using it in his wood stove. That was a sheer waste! could of been used for many productive ways.

I agree Jim, wood is wood, but I guess the term scrap is used to describe something ready for the fire. I have a hard time throwing any wood away.
