I was making a delivery on Friday and the company specializes in small boxes for cheese. The wood they use is 1/8" ply which after making all their cuts, small pieces are left over of an average 7"x6". These left over pieces end up in the garbage and I did a little dumpster diving and was able salvage about 200 pcs. I'll be going back to that place for more wood on a daily basis to see what other goodies are in the dumpster.
All Right dog ! a man after my own heart i love to dumbster dive for free stuff. I found real 1 inch thick pine bead board in the garbage 18 foot long ,painted white 3 months ago.The company built displays out of it for malls. I loaded my truck called a couple trimmers i know and it was 400 free bucks in my pocket for more airplane goodys . Good find dog. joe

Well, hopefully, better late than never! I have finally got a project to start for this build challenge. After hemming and hawing about which of my many plans to choose, yesterday I spotted a post on my old club's forum about an AerodromeRC short kit for the Albatross D Va being offered at a great price, so I called the poster and arranged to pick it up today. The plans and parts are now in my shop, and I'll get my bench sorted out and the plans taped down this weekend, and a few pieces glued up, with pics, of course, to post by Sunday night. I'll open a build thread as soon as I read over earlier posts here about how to set that up.

OK, here's the link http://www.wattflyer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=68363
