Hackberry which unfortunately developed a check the full length of the piece.  Embarrassed


Darn, sorry about that, it was okay when I cut it. but it sat for two or three days in the box before I sent it. I guess better now than after a lot of work went into it.

My package from Erik arrived yesterday!  It was like Christmas all over again when I was unpacking it.  I can't wait to try the Russian Olive.  Thank you so much!!

In other news, my package to Scott Scalco went out on Friday.  I realized after I had it all taped up that I didn't include a note or anything.  Sorry!  I think everything is labeled as much as I knew.  I didn't harvest any of the wood myself, but I've acquired it from other turners here in the St. Louis area.  Our turning community is very generous toward those of us who don't have any trees to cut down Smiley

OMG, I just opened Mary Poppin's bag disguised as a large flat rate box.  Seriously I don't think I could have squeezed a dime in there.  Pieces of Holly, Teak, Sandalwood, Madrone, a nice big piece of Fir root burl and some spalted Maple to name a few.  The stuff just kept coming out. 

Thanks Bill!   smiley=dankk2.gif Looks like this is going to be fun.

I am thinking that we should not wait untill we hit 4500 or 5000 members to have another trade.Maybe 4250 or even 4100.This is great fun.Thanks WR.

If we did it after every 100 new members, not everyone would have received their box before they have to pack another.  We have added 83 new members in the last 23 days.

  We could put the USPS back in the black all by ourselves.

Can we comment on you poll posting or is that just for the poll?

I got a wonderful box with a great assortment of beautiful woods from Spider Webb Monday.  Can't wait to turn into it.  Looks like Friday before that is going to happen though.  Thanks, Gary!

I'm pretty sure one of the ??? pieces is Birch.  I found another piece of it that was labeled.  Smiley  I hope you enjoy!

Got a big piece of Pecan today that had the box bulging. Thanks Brian B.  I see a nice bowl in it, some pen blanks, and a big box going under the lathe to collect the shavings for the smoker. smiley=thumbsup.gif

I got a bulging box today from Mark Warren.  It was so full the the PO had to put extra tape on it to keep it closed.  That must explain why a Priority mail package took 5 days from Missouri.  A couple nice chunks of Cherry, some OLD Osage Orange, and some Walnut & pen blanks.  And then there is another chunk of Dunno wood.

Thanks Mark

Does everyone realize that we are adding more than 100 new members each month.  It has been 28 days since we hit 4000, and we have added another 101 so far.
