6000 Member wood trade
Jul 16th, 2013 at 11:40am
 
MAY I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE!


You asked for it, you got it.  Again!

Announcing a new wood trade to celebrate reaching 6000 members.  We have gained 500 new members since Feb 14th! 
WOW!!
  It took only 151 days to add 500 more members!
Ladies and gentlemen, YOU are the reason Woodturners Resource exists.  Since we have reached this incredible count we want to celebrate by having another wood trade.

This trade is open to all members, even new ones.


Here is how it works:
     Go to the post office and obtain a flat rate box.  (They are free, stock up.)  Unfortunately, the Flat Rate Boxes are only good within the US, so this trade will be restricted to members inside the borders of the USA.  (So sorry to have to do this    Cry )
     Post in this thread and Send me a PM with your mailing address and list any woods you are allergic to in the PM.  To keep things straight, use the subject, 6000 Trade.
     You must designate whether you want to trade a MEDIUM or LARGE flat rate box, or 2 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. Be sure to
LABEL
what wood it is!

     Just after the deadline I will send out the name and address of the person you will send your box to.  Get your box in the mail and then sit back and wait for a similar box to arrive at your house.

Names will be put into random.org to assign who you will send wood to.  Once those names are announced, you may contact your partner via PM to see what their preferences are and then fill their desires, or simply surprise your recipient.  Since this is a Round Robin trade, no one knows who is sending to them.  Personally, I prefer surprises and suggest having your box(es) filled long before the names are drawn.

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

Deadline to have names and addresses in:      Sunday, 7/28/13, 9am PDT
Recipients to be announced no later than:      Monday, 7/29/13
Wood in the mail no later than:                     Tuesday, 8/06/13

If you go to the Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register website, print a label and pay on line, you can save $1.05 medium or $1.55 large on the postage and have your carrier pick it up at your house.

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 various quarantines.  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.

Let's do some trading!

Only 2 1/2 days left to get in on this trade.  I don't want to see any PM's next week that someone was a little late.

I guess there would be 500 new turners on this site now and some are not sure about doing this.  Let me say that it is first a lot of fun, like Christmas.  Second, I have participated in every wood trade since joining this forum and I have always been overjoyed with the wood I found in my box.  In fact a piece turned from a block of wood received last year in a trade was my wedding present to my son and his new wife last weekend.  I would encourage any of you that have access to a wood supply jump in on this.  And you guys that have been around as long or longer than I and have participated before come on again.

So i had a thought. Since there seem to be only 3 or 4 of us would anyone be opposed to doing 2 medium box's and sending to a couple of people instead of just one? Im game either way just a thought.

The PM's have been sent.  Don't forget to get your boxes in the mail by Tuesday, August 6.

Thanks for participating.  I am surprised that we had such a low turnout.
