... a big shrub is often fine

One of my most prized planes is a little (1-1/4" iron) guy I made from a piece of boxwood that that a fellow woodworker pulled out of the town dump near Richmond VA. He said people just pull the boxwood shrubs out when they get too big…the quality is as good as any imported boxwood. I've never actually tried it myself but it might be a viable option for free, high quality wood. I don' have a truck, so doing stuff like that is kind of a problem.
