As i said in my last blog I found another man’s “trash pile”, actually it is a local crate company. I went back today and am I glad I did. I picked up the trash shown in the folowing picture,

As you can see, I picked up a bunch of different sizes of hardboard also.

and lastley is yesterdays haul

Today I also picked up some 2’x2’ pieces of particle board and 4 pieces of 2’x2’ finnish 3/4” plywood. I now have to build a table to store the plywood flat so it doesn’t warp. That’s it for now.

Nice hauls.

You wouldn’t want to divulge the location of that dumpster, would you?

Man, love your basement shop!
