At what point would you toss out scrap lumber?
I'm looking at my work area and I have a ton of 1x1x4 and 1/2x1x8 cedar
strips and little odds and ends 2x4's and a half dozen other bits and
pieces. At what point would you start tossing, burning, or otherwise
getting rid of that stuff? What would you consider a useful board from
your scrap pile.
Ah yes, the mythical scrap wood. I've heard of it, but don't have
any. I've got sawdust, and small pieces of wood, no scrap wood, unless
you want to call the sawdust scrap, but I save some of that for
trasction in the winter, and sometimes to make wood filler. Anything
larger than sawdust is a small piece of wood.
If you want to get in good with the Woodworking Gods, you can send
along some of the so-called "scrap" wood you seem so anxious to get
rid of, as a sacrifice for them. As their High Priest I handle all
their administrative work, including sacrifices, don't try this at home.
I think they'd appreciate some of the cedar. Or, you can keept it, and
piss them off.
I do things I don't know how to do, so that I might learn how to do
