Reuse Is Such An Ugly Word
I reuse, and reuse is good.
Man, English is hard.
Same spelling, different pronunciations.
And don't you want to say royce? You know, like the pitcher, Jerry "Rolls" Reuss?
An umlaut here would help: reüse. And the verb could be spelled reüze. There, fixed it.
I reüze, and reüse is good.
Today was all about it.
I finished the front deck planter, constructed from 1x8 cedar boards I salvaged when replacing a fence for a client a few months ago. The 6 legs are pressure treated lumber of various dimensions gleaned from here and there. I built two six foot long U-shaped sections separately and connected them in place at the large center posts. Eleven plus feet long, two feet tall, and 16 inches front to back. The legs sit atop the ground and the box has no bottom, with inch gap at lower edge for drainage. Plus you don't want your cedar in direct contact with the ground--that's how a lot of these boards rotted in the first place. Cedar weathers well, but it does rot.
