But even I am just a casual Craiglist user compared to some.I picked up the wood, only to snag it on a fluffy bag of insulation poking out into the room. They were surplus furniture – one from the good ol’ days in my first house, circa 2000 , and another left behind a few tenant turnovers ago in the rental house.I tried to stuff this back into place, but the shelf was already overflowing with scraps of wood and other construction materials.
