    I'm not looking for firewood, but boards suitable for building and/or painting.

    Hi Earl, here in Australia we have a place called 'Reverse Truck Art' It is run as a fund raiser and they gather all sorts of material from manufacturers. Offcuts and rejects,  materials of all different shapes and sizes.  I think the concept started in the USA so hunt around , here it is a great source of materials  for Artists. They charge $5 for a garbage bag full of material.

    In the UK when I was studying art, I would spend an afternoon touring the town for waste skips outside houses being refurbished. The owners were often happy for me to take their waste. All free, all I needed was the petrol for the van I toured in.
