I'm a wood-crazed lumber hoarder who enjoys exploring locally for wood i can use to make stuff in my shop.
I'm new to the game, but very inspired. I'm glad I found this site, I'm excited to interact with other wood lovers, because nobody else UNDERSTANDS ME!

I hit the jackpot last night on my salvage rounds. I’ve been frequently checking the discarded cutoffs behind an office furniture maker near my workplace, where I have found small, scrap pieces of cherry (some long, skinny pieces too, but...
Sensational Salvage #10: Rescued a lonely solid Oak side table with a broken leg - Patch him up? or Cannabalize?
