I'm trying to get better at reusing shit. I just took out a bunch of oak cabinets and saved the wood for something else in the future and normally I would just get rid of it.
Also where I live it's free to go to the dump and they let you pick through the wood pile and take what you want so I might try to find some wood for some landscaping stuff.
Thanks, I still have more I want to do, but moved on to building a new deck in the back, as whenever I moved my deck chair around a leg would go through the painted cedar decking boards. Previous owner was meticulous in painting the deck boards, not good, traps water.
It costs $40 for your first #350 and $10 for every #100 from there at our local dump. People still go in droves....
I had a lot of time on my hands this last year so I have been scavaging for wood and metal at all the industrial warehouses and manufacuters here. Very successful. Marble and granite suppliers and wholesale contractor suppliers are the best of the best. Regularly they throw out huge protective casings for shipping made of 2x4, 2x6, 2x8 and 2x10 - 8' and 10' lengths. It takes a bit of legwork to dissasemble on site with a crowbar and sledge, but I got easily $4,000 worth of clean framing lumber over the summer, fun doing it too. Now I can't do it, have a job, but that's alright. Definitely for the best.
Here's part of my pile, have another 4 piles like the one in the background. You can see this was the day the fires moved in as well. In about an hour, the weather turned to RED and stayed that way for days....
