I’ve been messing around as an amateur woodworker for about a year now. I’ve mostly been working with pine wood simply due to how affordable it is. I’ve also done a few projects with cheap 2×4’s (the bench I have in my projects list, for example) and I’m working on finishing up a well I built for the wife out of similarly cheap wood which I imagine I’ll regret since it’s going to be outside, but I’ve got some great ideas for finishing it to help it stand the test of time as much as possible.
At any rate – the reason for this post: I’m wondering if there are any pros here in Connecticut that might have scrap piles that a budding amateur like myself might drool over that they’d be willing to sell on the cheap. I’d like to try my hand at some box building, or perhaps some end-grain cutting boards, but I’m apprehensive to pay premium prices for projects that I may end up screwing up.
If you’re in the area and want to chat then please drop me a line. Thank you for your time!
