    Where would be the best place to get Reclamed wood from in South east kent. Starting to make a few simple things for garden at moment and would rather use Reclamed wood than spend on new (save the trees sorta thing)

    Thanks in advance

    Don't be shelfish, post up what you've been making.

    For sourcing wood, skip diving, charity shops, sawmill off cuts, local tip, etc etc

    Make sure you got all nails out, or you will destroy saw blade.

    that's one of the sole things that annoy me in this plaice. Sick of herring about plans but they don't let minnow the results. Drives me cray cray.

    Join your local Freecycle group and/or find your local tile depot, they will probably have loads of wooden pallets that they would like to get rid of. I advertise loads on Freecycle and would be happy to help you out but it would mean a trip to London.

    I find a lot of free wood on Craigslist. Also, just keep your eyes open when driving around. Many businesses will have free bins of scrap lumber.
