So I get a call this morning from my father, who’s office is next door to a mill. He says there’s a stack of wood I need to check out. The fiance and I were planning and going to our normal supplier, and this place is along the way. So we jump in the truck and head off.
At first glance it looks like the standard weekly runoff pile I get for free from the usual supplier, but decide to look a bit closer. This pile has 4 large laminated pieces, about 20” wide 12ft long, and is CHOCKED full of 4/4 and larger pieces from 8-10ft long. 20 bucks later, and they load it for us! They also mention how they need to get rid of their normal run offs as well :-)
Took us 4 hours to unload/organise it, and we still have a sizeable pile on the workbench. Took a little time to cut 5 20×20 cutting boards out of one pre laminated piece. We plan on keeping 1 for personal use, and using 4 as thankyou/butter-up gifts for future bundles :D
Looks like we now have lumber for the seats, decks, and stems on the upcoming canoe! Along with a couple paddles!! and still have 3/4 of it left!
The first cutting board, or other project should cover costs on this whole stack.
