Let's Get Ready to Trade!
Apr 28th, 2012 at 9:46pm
 
MAY I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE!



Announcing a new wood trade to celebrate reaching 4500 members.  We have gained 500 new members since December 18th!
Ladies and gentlemen, YOU are the reason Woodturners Resource exists.  Since we have reached this incredible count 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 flat rate box.(they are free)
New this time you must designate whether you want to trade a MEDIUM or LARGE flat rate box, or One or More of Either or Both! I will be keeping 2 lists, one for Medium, and another for Large.
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.

Once the deadline to send in your name and address arrives, I will put the names into a name randomizer and assign who you will send wood to.  Once those names are announced, you may either simply surprise your recipient 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:  Thursday, 5/10/2012, midnight CST
Recipients to be announced no later than:    Saturday, 5/12/12
Wood in the mail no later than:                     Saturday, 5/19/2012

IMPORTANT!!  PLEASE READ!!  There are lots of creepy crawlies that have infested much of our wood here in the USA.  Because of that fact, borders have 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 can devastate our supply of raw material.  I would ask that everyone PLEASE remove all bark from your wood. Do NOT send any Walnut or Ash. Both woods are under quarantine.  Do NOT ship any wood that has obvious borer presence.

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.  If you used a sealer on the end grain, place the wood inside a plastic bag in the box.

Therefore:
This trade will be restricted to inside the borders of the USA.  (So sorry to have to do this   Cry )

If there is interest, we could run a separate trade for our Canadian members.  Is there an equivalent to USPS Flat Rate Boxes?

Let's do some trading!

Surly this isn't all the folks who are going to join in the fun!  Good number already, but we still have 7 days to sign up.  Come on boys and girls, get your name in mailing address to me so that you too will receive a box of wood from someone here on Woodturners Resource, the fastest growing turning site on the net.  You are why we exist.  You are why we have these trades.  You are WR!

I wish shipping was not so pricey, it wood be fun to do 2 or 3 and get wood I don't have from other states. At least it is not based on weight. But if you look at just the cost of wood(from a online dealer for example) $15.45 won't get you much wood when you have for shipping too. I think it's a good deal !!
