bird houses, feeders and planter boxes
Looking for supplemental income after spending 20 years in the airline industry I found a truck load of 1x 6 x 3ft new cedar from a fence project sitting on the curb waiting for waste management to pickup. I stopped and claimed the lumber filling the bed of my truck. I put my Ryobi tools to work and since then built between 50- 60 bird houses, bird feeders, deco fence hangers and planter boxes. I surprised my wife with a wheel barrow planter box for her birthday and she suggested that I take my projects to the local farmers market. Wow what a success.. I made some good money while saving the local landfill from a load of lumber. I have since found out that many fence companies discard their short boards and sometimes have to pay to haul them off. The projects were easy and I found myself building two or three and hour.
