I have a chance to cut my costs if some folks would give me an opinion. A neighbor of mine has recently gotten into wood working. He makes signs, little yard windmills, decorative plaques, etc. He has a copious quantity of wood shavings that go out in the trash. I was speaking with him this morning and he said he would be more than happy to see them be used. The only catch is, there might be a tiny amount of treated wood sawdust in the shavings. He said its a very limited quantity if any at all. But at times there might be. He has a planer and buys rough cut pine and once in a while some hardwoods. That is where 99.9% of the shavings come from. Can I use it? Other than directly eating the dust itself, I cant see much harm. Breathing maybe? Ive found some scary stuff in the shavings Ive been buying from TSC. An ear plug, a piece of metal, etc. So what do you think?
