DAMAGED SCAFFOLD PLANKS

THESE ARE DAMAGED SCAFFOLD PLANKS ,WAS GIVEN THEM FREE. AS THESE CAN NOT BE USED DUE TO HEALTH AND SAFETY LAWS.IF YOUR LUCKY ENOUGH MOST SCAFFOLD COMPANYS ARE INSURED SO THEY CAN GET NEW BOARDS .AS TO OLD BOARDS THEY WOULD JUST LIE IN THE YARD GETTING ROTTEN.SO WITH LUCK THE SCAFFOLD COMPANYS PAY TO GET THEM MOVED OR SELL THEM CHEAP FOR FIRE WOOD.OR EVEN PUT THEM THROUGH A SHREDDER.FOR GARDEN MULCH.. WASTE I THINK. BUT WITH A BIT OF IMAGINATION YOU CAN TURN THESE DAMAGED PLANKS INTO SOMETHING AMAZING AND UNIQUE.SOME BOARDS ARE 9 INCHES X 1 1/2  38 MM X 225 MM X EITHER 10 FT  / 3 METRES LONG. ALL YOU DO IS TAKE THE METAL BAND OF THE EDGES.THEN PUT THEM THROUGH A THICKNESS PLANER TO JUST CLEAN UP BOTH SIDES THEN THROUGH A BENCH SAW TO CLEAN UP EDGES. NOW YOU HAVE SOME PERFECTLY GOOD TIMBER.AS THESE BOARDS ARE OUT IN ALL WEATHERS ,THEY ARE WELL SEASONED AND MATURED. SO WHAT CAN YOU DO WITH  SCAFFOLD BOARDS? ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE WITH A BIT OF IMAGINATION. ALL ECO FRIENDLY AND RECLAIMED TIMBER WAS USED.REMEMBER YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BUY TIMBER FROM A TIMBER YARD TO MAKE ANY TYPE OF FURNITURE.PEOPLE WILL RESPECT AND ADMIRE YOU MORE IF YOU USE RECLAIMED TIMBER .IF THE WORLDS  CARPENTERS /JOINERS/CRAFTSMEN THOUGHT LIKE I DO THINK HOW MUCH MORE IT WOULD SAVE THE PLANET.  LESS WASTE IN THE LOCAL TIPS,LESS IN LAND FILL SITES. SO THINK ON NEXT TIME YOU HAVE A PROJECT YOU WANT TO DO ???DO I BUY TIMBER FROM A TIMBER MERCHANT OR DO I USE RECLAIMED TIMBER..I ADMIT IT TAKES A LITTLE LONGER TO GET RECLAIMED TIMBER TO THE STANDARD THEY SELL IN THE LUMBER/TIMBER YARD. BUT ITS WELL WORTH IT IN THE END. AND PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD WHO SEE YOUR WORK WILL RESPECT YOU.. SEE PLANKS BEFORE BEING PUT THROUGH MACHINES / SEE PLANKS READY FOR MAKING A UNIQUE PIECE OF FURNITURE . TOOK  A DAY AND A HALF IN MY OWN TIME TO DRESS THESE PLANKS UP. BUT WAS WELL WORTH IT.IDEAS ARE UNLIMITED AS TO WHAT TO MAKE???? AND IF YOUR LUCKY YOU COULD GET THE PLANKS FREE..
