Got Dad's wood and machines - nd advice
My Dad was an avid and very skilled woodworker/machinist/carpenter as hobbies. He had a workshop full o' machines - saws, milling machines, etc. - even an extensive dust collection system. Also had lots of wood boards that he stored indoors in dry, straight condition. - Now Dad has passed to the great woodshop in the sky, and left my Mom with all this stuff, no room to move in the house (wood everywhere), and not enough money. So we need to sell this stuff (would love to give it away if we were not in such a financial bind).
Does anyone have any suggestions re: how to sell it? Forget eBay - we cannot ship these bulky, heavy items. I'm shying away from Craigslist as well, as I don't want any shady characters at Mom's house (even though I have bought and sold on Craigslist myself). I figure I have a better chance if I try to find professional carpenters who have the means to haul it away.
This is in the Boston area. Any ideas would be welcome!
Thank you all.
