    As long as you don't make a big deal out of it...I'm ok with it. You contribute a lot--I really don't mind as long as that's not the only reason you're on the board.

    Something like "I've got 15 board feet of maple for sale or trade...private message me for details...

    If it becomes too regular, I might need to step in <grin>

      Thanks Bob

      Appreciate the quick reply. The last thing I am interested in is making money off folks here! Just wanting to share some good deals I recently took advantage of........

          Giving stuff away

          I belong to a "freecycle" internet group in the midwest (I believe there are groups across the country.) where people can give away stuff they would normally throw away as well as make requests for items. The idea is to keep perfectly good things from ending up in the dump. It is very successful.

          What does anyone think about having a version of "freecycle" for scrollers on this message board? I don't know if this is a good idea or not for such a narrow range of interest, but it might be worth a try.

            Im not sure about a freecycle type thing,but a free classifieds section,like on wood magazine message board might be nice.I would imagine no post would get viciously yanked out of here by Bob D. (ohh yeah,he looks so vicious doesnt he?????????????)))) if anyone posted somthing like .."ive got 5 pieces of 1/4 inch red oak six inches wide and blah blah blah,to give away to somebody if they want it" type of question.I would think that would be a welcome posting, but... if someone would say "I'm selling lumber, 1/4 by six inches wide ,blah blah blah,email me at my online business,"or whatever,like that,you know,a commersial on here.I would think that should be an unwelcome posting. Thats my thoughts on it,. Dale

              I wouldn't be offended to see something like "I've got x amount of y wood to share for an attractive price. Private message or e-mail me for details"
              As a matter of fact, I would probably be one of the folks getting hold of the lucky sharer.
              I guess we could make it a special thread, and those easily offended by such stuff wouldn't need to be bothered.
              Just some random thoughts.

                Whatever way you decide to do if you are happy and your brother in law is happy it was a good idea. If you really want to be brave use it as a learning experience. Make several of them using different suggestions and see the difference....

                Well, unfortunately, I have also decided to let my subscription lapse. I've been debating it for the past couple years. It isn't so much the money, but it's more the disappointment when yet another issue has so little in it that really appeals to me. The final straw was this past Fall/Winter edition...

                Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

                My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.
                I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
                Was it a good idea.....?...

                Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

                The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...
