Recently gave away boxes to a neighbour woodworker, probably 3 of them 2’x2’x1.5’ with oak, walnut, cherry, maple, exotics, etc. and have some packaged up for another woodworker (just haven’t made it to the city to mail) who uses tiny pieces.

I used your ideas last time I asked, and laminated a top for one of my storage cabinets with strips of walnut, ash and oak.

Anything shorter than 10’ and less than 1” thick is generally not used in my shop, but with exotics, I also save short pieces for pens.

A millwork shop that has used some of my bigger equipment over the years throws out (burns) ash, oak and cherry often 24 or 30” long, 8” wide and 1-4” thick. That’s a waste!

I try to stop in and buy a pile for a few bucks, but usually am a day late…
