In a busy woodworking shop, the saw dust and shavings pile up quickly. What to do with it? Some shops give their dust to local farms to bed their animals in. Other shops use it as scrap material and other shops simply discard of the dust and shavings. Saw dust makes a good spill absorbent, too. Before you just throw it away, consult your phone book or browse the Internet for other shops and farm areas that might be interested in taking the saw dust and scrap off your hands.
