Another supply of wood I got a tip from my bother in law about a big commercial building the are to demolish. He introduced me to the foreman. The foreman said to take any thing want I had until April 9th that's when the building is to come down. Here's a picture I'm going Tuesday for some more. What a gold mine. Many door frames 1"x 6" Meranti  wood I believe it's kind of heavy but cuts beautiful. 20180328_181057.jpg

Well I am new to the forum and this may have been suggested before. My best source of free wood has been from a couple of cabinet makers I befriended in the area. They buy quality wood for their cabinet jobs and always have overs, scraps, and cutoffs left over. They don’t try to save an use left over wood and most of it goes in the dumpster. I relieved one of them from a quantity of red oak 3/4 and 4/4 in various widths and lengths. He was taking it home and burning it in his fireplace. I have gotten oak, cherry, mahogany, walnut, and others. They don’t usually have large quantities, but I’m in the grandkid business, not production sales.

Spot-on advice Dongarrett and a proper use for wood scraps! I have also picked up woods of various types at Habitat for Humanity. Once a local wood products manufacturer brought in a semi-load of assorted hardwood blocks in 50 pound burlap sacks. I bought a few for $2 per bag. What a stroke of luck!
