PM me. If you're willing to drive a bit I have several bins of exotics and hardwood scraps (mostly short pieces). I can provide some to you. Also, check with builders in the area and see if that have cut-offs from hardwood flooring installations. They make great small boxes and can be glued up to look nice for larger projects.I am a college student that has a woodworking hobby. Hardwoods are EXTREMELY expensive. Does anyone know where i could get some free or cheap scraps of wood in the Baltimore, MD area?
