Hey fellow Atlanta woodworkers….
Anyone know of a cabinet shop in the Atlanta area that might be willing to let someone pick through their scraps/off cuts? Just looking for places to find some off cuts that would basically be worthless to the cabinet shop, but gold for us hobby woodworkers.

Not a shop, and not free; but Peach State Lumber has bucket of offcuts at reasonable prices. And not just the skinny shorts of poplar maple and cherry, you’ll find at the local shops. Last time I saw walnut, sapele, and hickory in there.

Sort of off topic, but I did some time at a fairly large cabinet door plant as a supervisor. We sold off cuts by the “tote” for a few bills, mostly for firewood. But since the shop was all about production, we couldn’t have folks rummaging through our off cuts for production and liability issues.
You might have some luck at smaller custom cabinet shops in your area.
The good news for me, was that I could rummage through those scraps, and built up a nice supply before I quit…. ☺

There used to be a shop in Alpharetta. Nice folks, and would accommodate ya. Might still be there. It has been a while since I was in that area.

Woodworkers Source in Phoenix has an offall tote where cut offs are sold by the pound.

Why not look for someone who has a bandmill and sells a few boards? There are more and more guys doing hobby sawmilling out there. There are half a dozen in my neighborhood, bet there are many around the edge of Atlanta. Some probably in the city sawing town trees. You would probably have to dry your own lumber, most do not have a kiln.

Have your say...
