Wood Wood Wood!

This morning we went and visited some friends of ours who are building a huge house in the hills above Redwood City here in California. We got a tour of their mansion to be. It's going to be truly awesome when it's finished in about 15 months. It's at the stage now where the framers are busy getting all the wood for the three levels of the house put together.
So this means they have a large bin of wood scraps, offcuts, pieces that they don't need. Wood! For free! So I reversed the mini-van up, and loaded the back full of sheets of 1/2 to 1 inch plywood, and many large chunks and planks of solid wood.
"What are you going to do with all that?" they ask. "Projects" I reply. My wife gives me one of those, well-it-is-Fathers-day-tomorrow looks and politely humours me.
Thanks Juan and Donna!
