The Local Habitat Revisited

We went back to the local Habitat Re-Store again today. We are going to try to go every Monday on my lunch hour. We scored again, spending only $15, but some of what we picked up will NEVER be used to build a chicken pen or a raised bed. We got several pieces of maple lumber. I'm not sure what we will use it for, but there was no way that we were going to leave that in the store! It wasn't of the quality that I would want to use for shelves in my house, but maybe it could be used to build outdoor benches? I don't really know. I am open to any ideas that you all might have. Each board is about 4 feet long and 8 inches wide.They are really heavy. I guess I'm used to the weight of similar sized pieces of pine.

All I can say is SCORE!

I guess it depends on the kind of maple. I have maple floors and and cabinets and the floors do tend to gouge easily so I'd be leary of using it anywhere that I minded scritches and the like.

Great score though!

Great find. We have a re store in our town, but it's very small. I try to get in there about once a month. I'll have to go more often as it grows - treasures can be found at the most unexpected times. Enjoy your hunts.
I like dinged up things, so I would use is for benches or shelves.
