I had the same question about the board foot thing. I have a MESS of reclaimed fence pickets, waterbed panels, and found wood sawn into lumber from Hurricane Ike that is just itching for a project… My only complaint is that the rules will keep me from using my pin nailer. I am getting addicted to that thing…

I want to make a desk out of some 3' x 3" pcs of 100 year old maple that I took out of an old farmhouse (was a hardwood floor) but I don't know about making the drawer slides out of the wood. I would have to buy new and I think this would disqualify it.

Scraps, what's a scrap? More often than not my scraps keep getting smaller and smaller until they end up in a
Flat-rate box going to pen makers and segmenters for cost of mailing.

If you used something NATURAL to finish it (like shellac? coloring with water based earth pigments?) maybe that would not disqualify you? Mineral oil, parrafin wax perhaps?

NATURAL is not the issue. It has to be USED or SCRAP. That is my question. All finishes are NEW. Does a left over half can (from a previous project) qualify?

Scrappy
