« Part 7: Reclaimed pine strip panel made with hand tools Part 8 of Reclaimed Glory series Part 9: Oak railing scored - now what on Earth am I going to do with it.... »

I have a serious problem with seeing great wood go to the dump (and a serious wood hoarding problem). I found these 2×2s in the trash behind my favorite property maintenance shop. Nineteen pieces all between 12 and 15 inches long. Some will have to be considerably planed down.

They told me they want me to make them into a side table. No really.

Sshhh, quiet for a second. What’s that?

Now they’re telling me thanks for coming to their rescue. I think today is trash day.

If its wood worth saving, its wood worth saving.

Im in the learning phase, so any straight pieces of lumber are fair game.
