    Maybe the Habitat for Humanity ReUse store? The last time I was in there they had EVERYTHING, including random lumber.

    Another consideration – have you thought of using a door as the top? Again, the ReUse had a ridiculous selection of solid wood doors – from fancy to plain panel to no panel. Everything in there was pretty dang cheap, so I can’t imagine it would be any kind of investment.

    That’s a good idea. My Dad has a work bench made from his old office door; sturdy enough for a vice, work surface, etc. .

    I enjoy repurposing doors and windows into furniture. Another way to find used lumber is to pick through the pile after a building is taken down. It sounds odd, but sometimes there are real treasures in those piles, just avoid the copper and you should be safe from arrest.

    Oh, good idea! I haven’t been to one here, but I’ve been to them in other states. I’ll definitely check it out.

    Did you ever find your lumber? We’ve been scouring Craigslist for barn wood with which to build a dining room table and bench. Not a lot of success at this point.

    Capital City Millwork in Westerville has reclaimed lumber.

    Dusting this one off… Planning on a trip to the ReStore Habitat for Humanity shop but ahead of that does anyone have any scrap lumber sitting around they need to get rid of? It doesn’t have to be in great shape, needing it for a Halloween project.

    I have some nice old barn siding I can sell you. It’s left over from a large project I’ve been working on.

    Please PM if interested. Thanks!
