A notice to all lumberjocks, I’m trying to get a web site going that will allow you to sell your plans, patterns etc. . So far I have a limited participation from woodburning artist Cheryl Dow to sell some of her patterns. If any lumberjocks have plans or patterns and would like to participate or just want more information please e-mail me at email@example.com . The URL of the proposed site is http://www.woodenhorsestudio.com/ .Thank you all.
