Hi from Lake Tahoe

Hi All,

I have browsed this forum before, and finally joined. What brought me here was my interset in rough milling some beams. Every year I go into the forest to cut fire wood for next season, and thought that it would be fun to cut some of my own lumber. Beams in particular cause 2x4's are just not worth my time, and I doubt I can get precise enough for boards.

I also build quite a bit of stuff from wood, but I would hardly consider myself a wood worker. Recently I redid the shelves of my kitchen pantry with the help of a real wood working friend of mine. That was quite an accomplishment with great results.

The real reason that I joined is that I have some parts for sale. However I must follow the rules and become an established member before I get to post anything in the classifieds. To give you a preview, I have a bunch of ceramic pepper mill mechanisms that I am trying to sell. The formentioned woodworking friend of tired to get into the custom peppermill business, but that was a bust. He now has a few thousand pepper/salt mill mechanisms, sitting around his shop. I said I would help him try to sell them for him. Not looking to make any money, just trying to get rid of stock and recoup some of his loses.

Wells that's it for now. Take care.

Bill

Welcome Bill glad to have you and at least I appreciate your honesty about your needing to follow the rules for the classifieds.

Everyone has to get started somewhere and that could be your start.

Thanks guys. I am not sure that i can "unload" a few thousand of them for him. I just figure I'd try to help him out.

I have been calling the firewood cutting hotline. The recent afternoon showers have opened up cutting again. During the peak summer months they suspend fuelwood cutting. Sometimes cutting is allowed till 1pm, sometimes not allowed all day. Today is a full cutting day that I missed. I am after some pine that has been bettle killed. I acutally think the blue fungus hue is nice looking.

Welcome to the forum. Hopefully, after you help your friend, you'll stick around. You may be suprised how much information you can get and how much you can contribute. There are a lot of knowledgeable and supportive folks on here.
Good luck with the mechanism selling.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"
