OK this is something everybody into recycling should know.

Some really brilliant tips.

Attached to my Working with recycled timber blogs are excellent tips fellow LJs have taken the time to pass on, and they directly add additional knowledge to the subject matter I was covering.

I personally think they are very worthwhile and are essential contributions to the WW knowledge bank,

It provides the two heads are better than one (or in some cases three) for situations.

So along with me recognising their valuable contributions I also recommend you to go back and have a read directly from their own words and their documented experience.

Here is me thinking I am the only person poor enough to go scrounging for recycled materials !

a P.S.

Remember the frame I showed that had some felt strips stapled on it?... well my wife saw them it and made a set of inner soles for her gum boots with them, talk about quick!

Keep watching

Thats a great tidbit about your wife reusing the felt strips. I spend about 1 hour each day foraging for wood that is tossed by local businesses around where I work. I have SO much hardware now, I dont know what to do with it. Sometimes, the wood is crap but the hardware is fantastic. I have some huge bolts I picked up from a shipping crate that wasnt going anywhere (HUGE), but these things must cost 5 bucks apiece! I also got about 20 of those hose clamps with the screw. Im sure i’ll find something to use them on. Great blog series btw.
