when you say “big” scrap,how big? i save and use just about anything longer than a foot.depends on if you have a use.my pile grows then it always seems too shrink.

Theoretically the biggest piece would be slightly less than 2” by 24”. Some would be 2×32, but those are less often.

I know it’s not a lot of money, but I make about a 100 of these legs at a time. So it would add up a little, but there is the labor of glue ups.

yeah id hate to just toss that myself,but if you never have a use for it,maybe at least firewood.i always seem to use mine up for something though.

Fairly simple calculation – labor and materials one way vs the other

Can you find someone who can use it? Maybe even a local high school’s shop that does smaller projects that the sizes may work?
