ScrapWoodScrapBin

I had a whole lotta scrap wood piled up in my barn, on the lanai, in the garage, and laying out in the yard. Pretty messy. Some of it is good 2xN cutoffs from when the barn or fence was built.

You probably have not noticed but our wiki got hammered by spammers.  I tried cleaning it up and installing spam blocking stuff but to no avail. Ben W did a big cleanup job a few weeks back and it was good for a couple days.  However the spammers came back, got around the blocks (creating 100s of user accounts) and ... Read More »
