Here are a few pictures of salvaged lumber collected in the last two months. Some of it came from where I work, and some got pulled out of a dumpster at a dentist office that was being remodeled. The majority of the lumber is 2×4’s that are about four feet long, plus a few odds and ends that are much longer and/or shorter. I also scored a bunch of half inch by six inch boards that will be used for a wood paneled wall in my basement. I feel really fortunate to have rescued this much usable lumber in such a short time, but it breaks my heart knowing that forests are cut down just to end up in a dumpster. Keep your eyes open and maybe you can help rescue perfectly usable lumber that would otherwise be trashed.
