ah ha…the old “walmart” dilemma. Not intended to offend…just the problem of retail you’re facing. Quality at an affordable price. Probably what we’d all like to see [again].

I think there are alot of retirees that work wood and don’t care about the money. they do it because they love it. Maybe there’s a segment you could check out.

Our crew recently visited an IKEA and started seeing the same thing [as Bill was talking about….”I can’t buy the wood for what they’re selling ‘that’ for”.]

We produce alot of shorts that I can’t help but feel someone could make a whole lotta stuff out of. I think we need some retiree that would just come in when he/she wants to and make ‘stuff’ out of it, sell it, maybe split whatever profit comes out of it…..better than stoking our fires with it.
