Topic tags/keywords: maple oak free wood the newfoundland woodworker wood

So I stop by a cabinet shop today and ask if they have any old MDF cut offs to use for jigs and such. This is what we get. It’s a small load of Maple and Oak. So, it just goes to show, it never hurts to ask :)

Adam, I asked my self the same question, but wouldn’t ask the question to loudly :) They told me, this is the scrap of the scrap as others came and took the good stuff. They are a very big shop. They said they would hold the next lot for us.

You should have seen the scraps that the guys and I would take when I was in a cabinet shop. We’d pick up toothpicks if we thought we could use them in a project!
