      Watch out for local businesses remodeling. Also, check out construction
      sites when they are doing interior work. You bay have to dig through the
      trash bin, but normally you can get it for free.

      Or you can contact the
      project manager or foreman to see if they have any ‘irregular’ pieces that
      they can’t use. I worked for a construction company and they had extra
      shelves that were in perfect condition except that they had too many
      ‘footballs’ (patch where there was a knot in the wood) in them for his
      liking. The shelves are next to my bed to this day.

      They cost $5 and the
      material alone would have cost well over $50. You have to ask and it is a
      real hit and miss thing, but it’s worth it. Also, check out garage sales,
      especially in rural areas.

      If someone has a shop or they look like they
      build things, don’t hesitate to ask for what you are looking for. They may
      have the materials for a project they may get to ‘some day.’ Oh, and check
      out your local freecycle network.

      They have building materials on there
      occasionally. You just have to hunt and keep your eyes open. I hope this
      helps.
