The owner of a local recycling center took a liking to me and gave me as much recycled wood as I need for free!!!!! These shipping crates are 3 feet by 4 1/2 feet plus the boards are 1 inch thick! There is so much wood at his place, he said I can come back anytime and get as much as I want. Then he took me inside the plant and in a large area, there is a man setting up a huge woodworking shop. That man told me I could work there anytime I want for free!!!! Industrial size sanders, drills, lathes….......... God blessed me today!!! Thank you, God!

Never enough wood. Take all you can get. Good job.

I use to have a place where I could get plenty of scrap wood but sorry to say they went out of business. They had those long 8 to 10 feet pallets with plenty of 2×4’s and of course the standard shipping pallets. I was able to build several building with the scrap lumber. Some times I would just stack the pallets to make walls then tie them together. Sure miss my free scrap wood.

It’s nice when you are smiled upon.

I work at a trailer manufacturing company and when we get steel trucks in with raw material, there is a bunch of dunnage that comes thru and there is some nice wood. Lot’s of oak, rough sawn about 3” x 3”. I recycle a lot of that at the home shop. Not to mention the tons of pine that is useful for smaller projects and trial runs, experimenting, etc.

Good Luck.

Hey great news on the wood crate supply score! I pick up lumber and wood every chance I get. It is valuable in the hands of a craftsman. One trip to the lumber store to buy a single piece of dimensional lumber in even plain old Pine is a quick lesson on how costly the stuff is. Also no telling what you can learn working in that woodworking shop, even when not getting paid. I wish I could do the same and maybe I will when I retire.
