HEAR YE! HEAR YE!


Announcing the 3000 Member Wood Trade!


We are just a few members short of 3000 on Woodturners Resource. That is a huge step in the life of any site. So, we want to begin a series of celebrations for several big events in WR's life.

Here's the deal:
For the next several days, if you choose to participate, you may send your name, mailing address, Type of wood you will send, and any wood allergies that you might have, to me via PM ONLY. Cut off will be a day or two after we actually hit 3000 members. I will give notices of the cut-off as we approach the dead-line.

Once you have entered, go by your local Post Office and pick up one of the mid-sized flat-rate boxes. Sorry, but Chuck said that he will not personally deliver all those boxes. (Something about a 10 mile limit per day on his kicks)

Take the box home, fill it with some of your local wood, and have it ready for the address that I will send out to you once we have closed the entries.

Once you get a name and address, take your box back to the PO, pay the postage, and put that wood in the mail. Your entry is your word that you will send a box of wood out. Everyone pays the same amount. Everyone sends wood out. Everyone receives wood in.

A few side notes:
Sorry, but after much consideration, those outside the boarders of the USA will not be able to participate. Postage costs (both ways), customs, and regulations simply cause this kind of trade to be prohibitive.

A few of you would like to trade the larger, more expensive, flat-rate boxes. If you will note that in your PM I will match you folks together as much as possible.

While I know it is extra work, PLEASE remove all bark from your blank. The EAB seems to live just under the bark as do many of the other destructive insects. Removal of the bark will help to insure that we don't accidentally transport any destructive critters across state lines.

We will not be turning this wood and sending it back out. Once you get it, the blank is yours to do with and when you wish.

This trade is meant to be fun and a celebration of the site's 3000 members. We have found over the years that the more participants we have, the more fun it is. Jump right in. The variety of wood you have available does not matter. The idea is to make some trades. You may get some wood that you've turned lots of. But you may also get some wood that you've dreamed of getting but have never had opportunity to turn. I make every effort to not have anyone get the same wood that they are sending out.

I'll keep a running list of the participants posted. If you send me a PM and don't see you name pop up on the list within 24 hours, you might want to send me another to make sure I got it.

LET THE FUN BEGIN!

I agree that a wood trade would cost too much to go abroad.!

Does anyone, outside the USA/Canada want to do a C&T. just to do something with the 3,000th member thingy. Smiley

How about a cup and ball, Spinning top box or whatever you think !! Smiley

Should I start a new thread for this Rev.?? Cool

Leo, that sounds like a fun idea too. I'm not sure if you get to play though. It will be next Christmas before yours arrives. Shocked

I would like to participate but all the wood I have was given to me and has been used. It might be months before I can find anything worth while other than a couple of small blocks of myrtle which I have. Is there a time limit on this?

Scott, we're at 2988 members now.  I suspect that the first of next week we'll hit 3000.  I'll start at that point with a 2-3 day count down to close the entries.  Once the entries are closed, they are closed and the wood will need to be shipped asap after I get the information out to every one.  So, yes there is a time limit.  But that limit is a few days off in the future.

BTW, I personally love myrtle.  Don't know anyone who doesn't like it.  What you have and/or can get hold of to fill a flat-rate box with will work.

I'll be happy to send some wood from a tree that fell to a storm last year. I haven't turned any of it yet, and would be pleased to share.  Details coming in a PM.
