When you have your first kid and she is a girl you need to make her a cedar hope chest / toy box that she can grow into. I work at a local lumber yard and we always have culls and dunnage that we file in the dumpster. Being the wood worker i am i can’t see good wood go to wast. So 90% of the material I use is stuff people think is junk. Yes it may take a little more time to work. But the benefits of working with culls and dunnage is so much better because you are saveing it form going to the landfill and the fact that it is FREEEEEEEEEEEEE.
the chest is red cedar that was the dunnage on the base row of a unit 1×6 wp4 cedar I was able to get 9 good 16’ 1×8 out of the base of that unit. Only used a few boards wonder what i will do with the rest?
