through a friend of a friend I got the opportunity to go get some free wood. its old door fronts and shelves from a school, they were removed years ago and have been taking up space.
its mostly 3/4 two good side maple there are about 12 shelves and 20 ish doors after removing all the trim and hinges its all 18×25 and 18×30 clear old ply there was a sheat and a half of 3/4 birch no good side but its free so hey
there was also a 1×5x4` tiger maple slat that was from some old toy set that has gone by the wayside its a little rounded from kids kicking it around but its out of the trash and into the wood pile now I just need some ideas
The ply will be toy boxes and the rest will see
theres about 6 sheets of ply here just all in bits seams like an ok deal to me

Say Norwood are these old 5 or 6 panel doors ? I have made furnture [cabinets, bookcase, table etc] by cutting the doors and using these ‘panels’ as the sides for a cabinet or bookcase. If you like I can post pictures of them to help explain them , just say the word.
