Found A Couple Of Boards

Driving a parts place in town, I noticed that the place that I have been getting wood from had a huge pile ready for the taking.

I promptly backed up and me and my son started loading, I called my brother to see if he could bring us some gloves since I had misplaced mine that are supposed to be in my pickup, and because it was -5*, our fingers were getting a little cold.

When he showed up, my pickup was about 1/2 loaded, then he started loading his...

I have never bottomed my pickup out until tonight... My brother didnt have quite as much but still alot of wood.

There is this much sitting outside of my garage right now and about 5 times this much stored over at my dads house.

Looks like clean cut up skids. I've posted on the danger of using pallet wood but since yours' is coming from a lumber yard, it's probably clean of chemicals. I'm impressed with your local lumber yard for offering their pile for the taking. Most would put profit before sensible recycling and not offer their skids to potential customers. Congratulation on your free wood - Responsible recycling does exist after all.

Its' never hot or cold in New Hampshire... its' always seasonal.

Well now I never said it was a lumber yard...

But it is a yard.

The wood ranges from 2X4 to 6X6 and everything in between all right around 10' long, 99% of it is all hardwood.

Looks like stripping from a pipeyard. Most of the time out here, it's rough cut oak. Good find!
