My local TSC is out of pine shavings....have been for about a week.

I thought I could hold out until they got more in, but I called a while ago and they still don't have any, and now I need something.

My question is, since I build cabinets and furniture I have an abundance of Ash planer shavings out in the shop from a current kitchen I'm building....can I use Ash shavings as a substitute until i can get pine from TSC?

Thanks in advance.

I'd be worried about whatever the cabinets where treated with. Do you know that wood hasn't been treated? Just don't use cedar... it is poisonous to chickens.

Quote:No these are not existing cabinets...this is wood I cut and dried myself, basically the raw product before I make anything out of it.

No treatment, varnishes, stains etc.
