All this talk about wooden toys reminded me of the free scrap pile at Madison Mills! Located just south of Charlotte Ave. on 42nd, this millwork factory dumps its high-quality hardwood "ends" and warped trim on the roadside--free for the taking! Someone with a woodstove and determination could probably heat a house with these. We gathered a bag to use as outside playtoys. I'm tired of wiping mud off LEGOs and action figures!
Isn't this photo classic "boy"? I'm tired of taking house pictures. If I can remember, I'll tuck the camera in my purse and get some shots as we go about our shopping and errands.
My brother-in-law did heat his basement this way - got his young children to stack the pieces for him - kept them busy for hours!
I agree what a waste is that pile of scrap wood still available I would love to get my hands on some of it is it still their
