I don’t have that much cut into lumber. I probably have maybe 2000 board feet cut up. However I have an additional 17,000 board feet of Beetle Kill Pine in logs, plus about 10,000 board feet of various hardwoods that need cut up as well. But then, doesn’t everyone?

I spend all the warm months of summer, spring, fall, to collect choice logs from anywhere I can. And of course wood or lumber from any knocked down construction or furniture being thrown out. I end up with all that I can handle. It’s a lot of fun looking for logs while taking walks through dense areas. But does that make me a hoarder or just smart doing something one enjoys?

Yes, I am a hoarder… I look at a piece of wood and SEE something it could be used for… so I keep it!
... and, of course, I never seem to get around to using it for THAT reason I kept it… and so it goes… and goes…

Hi! My name is Candy. I am a wood hoarder. Any of you that are not, just send those scraps to me. Unlike Joe, I don’t always SEE, but I KNOW there is something I can do with the smallest piece of wood. Bob, that is a great picture!

-- God bless, Candy

just because I keep every little scrap of wood that comes off my saw, does not mean that I am a hoarder…... or…. maybe um, uh, I know, I am frugal when it comes to wood, thats what I am frugal. not a hoarder, not a hoarder, not a hoarder, not a hoa…..............

I would love to hoard wood but with limited shop space, my goal is to use up what I have laying around as quick as possible. I hate throwing out scraps but every once in a while, I just have to make that tough decision to get rid of some of it.

Hello, hoarders. What bothers me most about my hoarding is when I have thin piece shaved off by a tablesaw cut, maybe 1/16” thick, and I say “ooh, that’ll make some good shims” and I toss in the shim section of my scraps bin. I have enough for about 3000 shims! STOP IT!!

I would suggest a bandsaw box for that large piece of walnut? I think it’d look great with the undulating top.

I am done with it when I wash my hands with sawdust mixed with handsoap. (laughing)

I am not a wood hoarder. To say I was would be admitting I have a problem. I have a use for every piece of wood I have. I just haven’t got to it yet.

Hi. My name is Roger and I am a wood hoarder. It all started when I first began to stand up in my crib. I’d pull myself up, and noticed, Hey, I could chew on this rail…..................OH, WAIT, when I grow up, I could make something outta that….... And so it begins. LOL
