I've sent my articles on CD to Mark Baker at Woodturning and don't remember having to pay that much. He wants me to write another so i guess I better get busy. Maybe I'll find out the price has gone up that much.
I did take some photos of work and my friend Marion Randolph in his shop. Mark was interested in them for a gallery page. Hope he runs it. you'll enjoy the photos of Marion's home made lathe.
I don't get the quality of wood that Daren gets but I have a yard full and it's going bad. Wish everyone could easily stop by and get some. I've offered my local turners but rarely does anyone come buy. I just got 3 fairly large basswood logs that I hope to rip up into carving size blanks and dry them.

wood going bad for lack of interest?


I live in northern Colorado, and lots of stuff won't grow well, or fast, here. I have some urban salvage, some in chainsaw cut slabs, some in chainsaw cut limb chunks, some in bandmill cut air-dried lumber. I'd be willing to trade some of my stuff for some of anybody else's. Here's how I propose to do it.
If you're interested, send me a pm with a picture and/or description of what you have, and what you'd like to see of mine. I'd respond in kind.
If we both agree, we'd trade.
The Post Office has a Priority Large Flate Rate Box (the box is free) 12 x 12 x 6, that ships up to 70 pounds anywhere in the lower 48 for $12.95. really.
They also have two smaller boxes, 14 x 12 x 3 1/2, and 11 x 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, up to 70 pounds, anywhere in U.S, $8.95.
You'd send me one of yours, and I'd send you one of mine.
I have chunks of apple, slabs and lumber of elm, and lumber of honeylocust.
Let me know if you're interested.

TT, How much would you be asking for some of the spalted red box elder? That is some beautiful wood.
