I was able to connect with a local cabinet shop and they will give me all of their drop-offs I want. Now it will mostly be Baltic birch plywood and oak (for face frames). My wife says, “you don’t use that type of wood”. I am going to rethink some things and see if there is an area to use some or all of this. One area I sell to is the senior market. It will be great to product items for this market and sell at a low price. More on this operation later.

Lucky you. Congrats! You could always make alphabet puzzles for kids and the ones that are the alphabet in a snake shape and of course doll furniture. You could also make eyeglass holders for the seniors, Sheila Landry has the cute cat and dog shapes. You could make remote control holders. And you could glue up a couple for extra thickness and make bookends. Just a thought.
