All of mine go in a box for when the grandkids come over. They love going into the shop to “make” something. Lol. The little guy loves to glue them together and his older brother likes to design things with them. Either way, they get used up in creative ways.

Constantly tripping over them, whether in a box or lying randomly on the floor........ Jerry (in Tucson)

Mike, I live in Arizona. . I would rather cook with natural gas unless it's bbq time, but my winter stash usually builds up for next winter, and so on. I don't burn a lot of wood. It's too hot most of the time, and when it's cold, it's not long enough spells to burn my stash. As a confirmed wood whoreder, I just can't toss it. But, it's getting to be a fire hazard, so something has to be done...... Jerry (in Tucson)

As I've mentioned before, I have an artist customer in NYC who buys scrap from me to make wall art. He ordered two large boxes from me last night and mentioned in his email that he has been accepted in three galleries for upcoming shows. Since January, he's bought 14 boxes of scrap wood. He sent me these photos of his latest work. There is a market, folks, for art like this.

they are nice, he does good work
Maybe it's just me but I think they are like aerial views of the city. And many species of wood that most city folks will not often see are included. Something very organic and natural about it. But I do admit it had to grow on me. He is a native of S Korea and works for a high-priced cosmetics company in the city.
