Here’s a picture of my woodworking project this last weekend. I spent most of Saturday doing this and here’s what I have to show for the work:
Yup it’s an empty space on the side of the house, just outside my shop. I didn’t think to take a before picture. Sigh. What was here, was a lumber rack with a ton of crappy wood. Stuff that came from various demolition projects around the house over the last ten years. I was save some of it because I thought I might reuse it, but I finally accepted that I’d never use most of it. The wood was just sitting the slowly rotting and collecting bugs.
So I loaded it all up and drove it over to the local landfill and their wood recycling program. They do various things with it – grind it for mulch, make wood stove pellets, and other things. And they charge you for it. Cost me $50 to recycle a truck full of scrap wood.
I did keep some of the better pieces and have a few projects from that I’ll doing this summer. For now I’ve gained a clean yard and a reduction in spider habitat.
If you need me, I’ll be in the shop,
