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.

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.

Yep, all junk. Better just toss it back in the dumpster :)

Nice hauls.

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

Man, love your basement shop!
