MAY I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE!

Announcing a new wood trade to celebrate our achievement of 3500 members.
Ladies and gentlemen, YOU are the reason Woodturners Resource exists.  Since we have reached this incredible we want to celebrate by having a wood trade.


Here is how it works. 
Send me a PM with your mailing address and any woods you are allergic to.
Go to the post office and obtain a MEDIUM flat rate box, the one that is flatter and not so much shaped like a shoe box.
Cut some of your local wood to shape and size so that it will fill that box.
Just after the deadline I will send out the name and address of the person you will send your box to and then sit back and wait for a similar box to arrive at your house.

This time we will do things a little bit differently.  Once the deadline to send in your name and address arrives, I will put the names into a name randomizer and pair the participants up.  There is a plan if we have an odd number.  Once those names are announced, you may either simply surprise your partner or contact them via PM to see what their preferences are and then fill their desires.  Personally, I prefer surprises and will have my box filled long before the names are drawn. 

So, get your names and addresses to me via PM, fill those boxes, and let the games begin.

Deadline to have names and addresses in:  Saturday, 7/30/2011, midnight CDT
Pairings to be announced no later than:       Monday, 8/1/2011
Wood in the mail:                                       Friday, 8/5/2011


IMPORTANT!!  PLEASE READ!!  There are lots of creepy crawlies that have infested much of our wood here in the USA.  Because of that fact, most borders are being tightened on raw wood.  Even within the country I understand that the PO is watching things a bit more closely.  Besides we don't want to be responsible for the spread of insects that devastate our supply of raw material. 
Therefore:
This trade will be restricted to inside the borders of the USA.  (So sorry to have to do this  Cry)
I would also ask that everyone PLEASE remove all bark from your wood. 
I would further suggest that you fully tape all the seams and corners of the box so that any critters that do make it through your diligent inspection will be contained until it arrives at its destination. 

Let's get ready to do some trading! Smiley  Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley

3500 Members! WOOD TRADE!!!
Reply #2 - Jul 19th, 2011 at 9:35pm
 
How many of you would like to see a box of wood from somewhere else in the country?  The Post Office doesn't charge for the boxes, and the postage is only $10.95.  Most people pack as much in as will fit since the postage is based on the box size, not the weight.  All you have to do is cut some wood from your stock to fill the box and mail it.  In return you get a box of wood from someone else. 

So far we only have 13 members signed up.  You have a week and a half to sign up and another week to get the box ready and get it mailed.  This only happens a couple times a year, don't miss out.  This is one of the member benefits that you signed up to access.

To fit in a medium Flat Rate box.  There are 2 Medium FRB.  One is about 12X9X5, and the other is 12X13X3.  Depending on what you have, cut it to fit one or the other.  Either one costs $10.95 at the PO or a little less if you pay on line.  A while back I used an axe to split a log to fit.  So cut it however you can.

Let Rev know if you are in.

The list is growing.  You don't want to be left out.  This is not like a C&T where you have to go out and turn a piece to fit into some guidelines.  All you have to do is cut some wood, slide it in a box, and mail it off.  You will, in return, receive a similar box of wood from some where else.  Simply an exchange of wood from different parts of the country.  Get your mailing information to me ASAP so you won't be left "holding the bag."

Up to 15 now.  Can we make it to 20?  To the best of my knowledge 20 is as many as we have ever had in an exchange.  Come on folks, lets not allow those from the past participate at a greater number than us.  We are the best of WR, for we are the here and now.  (Gee-Whiz that sounds like a Pepsi comercial)  Who else will join the fun.

Packed up my box today but used the more rectangular box... I was actually able to fits the pieces into it better than the longer but shallower box. If this is a problem, I need to know soon!

use either a O-FRB1 [11" X 8.5" X 5.5"] or  a O-FRB2 [11-7/8" x 3-3/8" x 13-5/8"]

you can order them from the PO and have them shipped right to your house for free.

Alrighty, I packed my box tonight!  I have to say, it's bulging at the sides a tiny bit, but I think the post office will let it through.  Now to wait for my partner to find out if he/she prefers all wood, or if they'd like me to swap one of the pieces out for a jar of homemade jelly.

Should this be one big piece of wood, and is it limited to native wood in my area or whatever wood I have on hand?

It doesn't have to be one piece.  I have received boxes of pen blanks.  It is not the preferred size piece since many of us aren't penturners.  I have also received pieces that were cut to fit the box.

Hey folks,
Let me make some things clear.  In the original post, I was a bit anal and overly specific.  So here are some modifications that I think will make things a bit easier and maybe even more fun.
1.  Use either of the USPO medium sized flat rate boxes.  Either O-FRB1 [11" X 8.5" X 5.5"] or  a O-FRB2 [11-7/8" x 3-3/8" x 13-5/8"] will work fine.  They are both the same price to ship.  BTW, if you purchase your postage and print your label on line, you will save a few cents.  Sorry Chuck, there goes your raise.

2.  Wood can be either a solid piece of multiple pieces.  The point is that you should FILL the box.  If some one else is sending you a full box, it would be less than kosher to send a box less than full.  The FRB2 is about 40 cubic inches larger, but your trade partner might like that shape of wood better. 

3.  I have been asked and like the idea, so I'm going to throw it out and you can take it as an option or you can forget it, your choice.  If you would like to send out 2 boxes (and receive 2 boxes as well), let me know and I'll put your name in the hat twice.  You will then be obligated to fill and send out 2 boxes of wood.  In return you will receive 2 boxes of wood. 

4.  In previous trades, we had some folks who wanted to send and receive the Large boxes.  All find and good, but it basically caused two trades at the same time.  If you want to send a large box, no problem, but I am not going to keep you folks separate.  If you send a large box, you may or may not receive a large box in return.  The only way you might be able to work around this is to speak with your trade partner and make those arrangements.  However, I would ask that you would not try to make them feel obligated to send a large box just because you are.  Some have even packed their boxes already.  I plan to as soon as I get home from vacation. 

5.  If you know the wood you are sending, make sure to mark it with the state it came from and kind of wood it is.  For example, I may send out some cherry, so I'll mark the wood, KY Cherry.  I have some wood that is Dunno wood and if I send it out, I will mark it so.  If the receiver knows what the wood is I would hope they would let me know so that I can label it correctly and let my customers know when I sell a piece of it next time.

I hope these thoughts help you some and take some of the stiffness out of the whole thing.  This trade is meant to be fun and an opportunity to get some wood that you may not get to turn on a regular basis.  I'm hoping I get one of those folks out in the AZ desert.  They have come pretty cool wood that is different than what I have in KY.  Then again, so do the folks in CA and WA and UT and ...  Not able to look at my list right now, but I can tell you that the group is spread out all over at this point. 

Only a few more days to toss your name into the hat.  Don't be left out of this opportunity to possibly get some wood that you don't normally get to turn.  It's Christmas in July.  Thank goodness it's not as cold either.  Get your name and address in to me asap so you won't be left out in the cold with no wood to turn or burn.

I see 19 names on the list.  A couple of those would like to send/receive 2.  What about you?  Would you like to be included in this list of traders?  Would you like to send and receive 2 boxes?  Time is running out.  Get your name and mailing address in to me via PM ASAP.  Dead line is Saturday night @ midnight.  After that and sorry bout that, but you'll be out of luck.

Thanks, David.  You tie us up for the largest number of participants. 

Come on folks.  Let's set a new record for the greatest number of participants in a wood trade.  You have 14 hours to get your name, address, any wood allergies, and if you are going to send 1 or 2 boxes out.  Of course, if you send out 2 you will get 2.  Several have indicated that they want to exchange 2 boxes. 

This is a great way to get some wood that you may not have turned before.  Or maybe it's been a long time since you came across any.  You may have an over abundance of some wood in your shop.  This is 1 good way to move some of it out. 

Let's get busy folks.  Get your information in to me ASAP!  Let's do some tradin'!


If you have sent me your information, please check the list above and make sure your name is on it.  If not, check with me asap about that as well.  I wouldn't want to leave anyone out because of my poor clerical skills.  Thanks.

What a trade this has become.  I'm so excited about it.  Not only has WR reached an important milestone, but with 4 people doubling up, we have 24 boxes of wood being exchanged.  In effect we have 24 participants.  Anyway, there are more boxes going and coming than ever before. 

And the partners are:

Doug Miller     Stan McKinnon
Doug Miller     John Long
Jim Quarles     Bill Schoppert
Erik Sonntag     Zack Morgan
Erik Sonntag     Mike Stephens
Kevin Stanbary     Allen Thunem
Harold Goodman     Roger Smith
Harold Goodman     Buck Nemitt
Cliff de Witt     Scott Gates
David Seaba     Carrie Bradfield
David Seaba     Tom Tunget
Erika Kendra     Kathy Marshall

Everyone should see their name at least once.  Those whose name appears twice asked to be entered twice.  Half the names were randomized twice.  The other half were randomized 6 times.  No allergies were reported so there were no adjustments made.  If your boxes aren't already packed, you need to get them packed in the next couple of days.  All boxes need to be in the mail by Friday, August 5.  I'll send out PM's with addresses this afternoon.  If you don't get a PM by 6:00 tonight with your partner's addy, let me know so I can make adjustments.  You can PM your trade partner if you like, but surprises are good too. 

Don't forget to post when you send, when and what you receive.  If you remember, it might even be fun to post what you made from it, but that could be a while in the waiting.  Thanks for playing.  It's because of folks like you that WR is the greatest woodturning resource on the web.

Happy trading,

By now, everyone should have received a PM from me with the name and address of your trade partner(s).  PLEASE, double check the name in the PM against the name in the post above.  MAKE SURE THEY MATCH.  This is a difficult task in the best of conditions and I'm trying to do it after a week of vacation and then coming back and preaching this morning.  My brain is cooked.  If I have made a mistake please let me know in a PM asap so that I can make the corrections. 

The most important thing is HAVE FUN!  This is for you.  So, let me know if there is anything problem that you run into along the way.  Just our way of helping to make Woodturners Resource the best turning site on the web.

OK, I've done it again


Sorry about all this confusion.  Forget all those PM's I've sent.  Go with the list 2 posts down.  Contact the person you are paired with and get their mailing address.  If you have a problem getting in touch with them, ask me and I will give you their address.  Does that make sense?  I hope so.  I told you all I am brain dead.  Apparently I've just proved it.  Can't even keep the lines straight.

Again, I am sorry for confusing the issue.

For anyone shipping wood to the HOT parts of the country,  If you used AnchorSeal or wax on it, be sure to pack it in a plastic bag.  For some reason, the PO gets suspicious about boxes leaking wax.

Mine is sealed up, labeled for Bill Schoppert, with postage attached, just waiting for the mailman to pick it up tomorrow.

In case you didn't know, you can go on the Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register website, and click on "Ship a Package" on the top bar.  That will take you through a series of steps to produce the label and pay postage with a credit card.  It even gives you a discount over what you would pay at the PO.  At the same time, you can schedule for your mailcarrier to pick it up.  If you schedule before midnight, they can usually pick up the next day.  There is even a spot to tell them where you are going to leave it.  That's cool, a discount and you save on gas too.

I got my package today from David Seaba.  This is so fun!  It was filled with a great variety of wood including Maple, Walnut, Osage Orange, Coffee Bean, Butternut and a bunch of exotics--Cocobolo, Zebra wood, Ebony, Purpleheart and Padauk.  He also threw in a couple of pen kits, so I might just have to make my first pen one of these days Smiley

Jim You'll hafta come over again andwalk me through some pens!

I sent mine out today.

I had a mishap on the bandsaw on Tuesday cutting some blanks up. A moment of stupidity actually. smiley=shake head.gif  bang head
3 stitches in my right pinkie. Cut right in on the outside of my finger just along the nail. I had just shut the saw off but didn't wait for it to stop before swiping at some dust on the table.

The good thing is, it didn't get the nail or bone and I can tell you,
it'll never happen again!

A moment of carelessness which couild've been much worse.

Me too!  Got home and a box from John Long was sitting on my work table.  Indian Rosewood, Cuban Mahogany, Camphor, Lacewood, and Red Gum Eucalyptus.  Lots of fun stuff that I am seeing all kinds of possibilities.  Thank you, John.  I have your box ready to put in the mail in the morning.  I think you're going to like it.

So much wood too little time Undecided
A full box of mesquite Chunks from Zack
An elm bowl blank that barely fit in the box and a cherry goblet blank from Buck.
A cucumber bowl blank  a piece of red gum and a piece of hackberry (one of my favorite pen woods) from Rodger.

Problem is the Santa carving bussiness is going nuts and is going to get worse in the next couple of months.  One of our Santas was just in Country Sampler magazine and I have been invited as a sponcered artist to the Country Living Magazine show in Ohio in September. Carving pays the bills so it will take priority although I like to turn as much as carve.

The heat/work has taken a lil pep out of me but time to post that my box came yesterday and I am just now opening it up.
My box came from Goody and I made notes on half of it already for the use of pieces towards applied projects.
Thanks Woodturners Resource for this trade-- smiley=thumbsup.gif smiley=thumbsup.gif

Alas, both my boxes are in the hands of the USPS.  As long as they don't get processed through RI they should arrive on Monday at their final destinations.  Enjoy fellas.  They are both packed full of KY love.

How are we doing folks?  Are all the boxes out and on the way to their recipients?  Just a friendly reminder that your wood needs to be out and on its way.  Don't want to send out specific reminders to you.

Sorry for the delayed post. I am in the middle of selling my house and buying another.

I received a box with a nice piece of Russian Olive from Erik Sonntag. Thank you Erik.

Alright, I've been informed that all wood has been sent that is going to be sent.  We had 20 participants.  24 boxes of wood were sent through USPS.  1 participant had a stroke and was not able to fulfill his desire to be a part of this exchange.  The organizer, me  Embarrassed, made a major fauxpaw.  One person sent wood to the wrong address, but was graciously remedied by the recipient.  Thank you all for participating in this exchange.  Without all of you Woodturners Resource would be just another site trying to figure out how to stay on the internet.  There other woodworking sites.  There are other wood turning sites.  But, there are very few where the members have become family the way WR has.  You sign on, share, ask questions, give suggestions, even raz each other a bit.  Continue to support our great site and remember to share it with others that you meet.  We love nubys!

Rev,
Thanks for the hard work and effort to make this happen.
As far as the mess up it worked out great.  I got three boxes of wood and sent out three so that should bring our grand total to 25.
When we gonna do it again?
