I would like to participate but I was just wondering how we would do the shipping situation for our friends in countries outside the US.

What does it cost to send a package that far. That would be my only issue.

One of the many reasons for not wanting to be an organizer is having to make such decisions.

My thought was to make this round quicker than the previous where we still have some folks who are waiting for their mallets, some in the mail, some not yet made.

I think the fact that we already have 2 folks who participated in round 1 makes me feel there will be another round. Woodwart for one needs to wait until Ontario gets above freezing.

I would prefer to make this round quick, but open to comments from others. It is after all "our" swap.

Sorry, your previous post was advising we did not need even numbers, you had not specifically stated you wanted to participate again.

OK, you are in.

It is not cheap, but it is likely cheaper than for the folks outside the US.

In the first round there was discussion about having the US folks who will be in the majority throw in a few extra bucks to help the postal situation.

A small International Flat Rate box via USPS is $16. This is too small for a mallet.

A medium International Flat Rag box is $48.

A Parcel of weight 2 pounds and no dimension over 12in sent via First Class Mail is more reasonable $18. Looks to the the same for Sweden or Australia. Go figure.

If the weight were 3 pounds it would be just over $24.

We still need to work out the details so we can include our friends outside the US. Definitely adds interest to include other countries.

So, does this make you want to be included or pass. No issue either way. This is meant to be fun.

I can do it in a weekend but I still say 3 weeks is better than only 2 weekends. Especially for those who do glue ups and need drying time

Either time period works for me. By the way, what happens if you miss the deadline? Does someone stop by and wack you with a mallet?

That would be perfect.

Reminds me of my old job writing computer applications.

I often used to complain I wanted the computer program I was using to include a feature where I could code that if users did crazy things, then an arm would pop out of the monitor and slap them on the head.

I spent a LOT of time working around the users who would do some really dumb things, especially in Microsoft Excel.
