And they call me cheap! Good idea to save good wood from the dumpster and landfill. There is a store that has imported furniture made from mahogany, teak, etc. Will have to pay them a visit to see what they have in the unusable department. Thanks for the idea. My wife now knows why I slow down and look at stuff sitting curbside.

Only way to go is free!
Theres free wood all around you if you take the time to look for it!
I get free stuff from cabinet shops and shutter manufactures job sites etc.
At the worst they will say no but 90% of the time i find they are glad to
get rid of it and its not going to waste. If anything you will make a new friend
and maybe they will know of a place you can get free or cheap wood!

That's why I allways look around me.
And if I see something I go there and ask.
No you have, Yes you can get. In a matter of speaking

Nice one. I find dumpster diving, where offices or houses are being being built or refurbished, is also good. In 1989 I was working opposite Buckingham Palace, in London and picked up a nice piece of Oak from one, not 500 yards from the palace gates!
