My name is Peter, I am a wood hoarder. I collect nice wood and pretend that some day I’m going to put it to good use. I might…

Watch me share some of my stash and talk about this strange obsession. I think we’re all like this to some extent!

Loved the video and I am exactly the same as you. I’ve got wood I’ve been saving for over 20 years. ;-)

It’s not that I hoard wood… I just collect it all together to throw away at once….

Now one might say I have been ‘throwing’ that wood out for 3 years now… which I have, there’s no denying that, but I don’t think I have a problem, after all, I once did use 2 strips of 1/2” x 1” x 10” for a handle, so it is a good thing I have meticulously kept a metric crapton of small cutoffs, otherwise how else would I possibly had the material to make a 1×1x8” handle for a small hammer…

Very nice video, welcome to the club and we will be glad to enable you.

Pick a sizable project to build and get to it. Nothing too complicated; perhaps a porch swing, picnic table, etc. to build and those feelings will go away quickly. That’s what I do anyway.

Great video.

Though I have never admitted it before, I too am a wood hoarder. Even worse I am a second generation WH. I am currently trying to make room in the shop for a big stack of redwood lumber my Dad has been saving for 50 years. Hopefully it will skip a generation … buy my son is kind of pack rat….
