I drove 3 and 1/2 hours to attend the swap meet in Sacramento on Sunday. I found some nice wood and met a few Lumberjocks. Rustfever was there with some nice wood he has sawn. I got some Carob and Beeswing Eucalyptus( he called it butterfly Euc.) And some Walnut burl. I met Gene, Majeagle,and talked boxes. John Ormsby was there selling wood. I couldn’t wait around to go to his house to see the good Maple. I bought some odds and ends of wood from a young guy and got his number to see more of what he has sawn. There were quite a few people selling tools and what looked like some good deals. I don’t need any more tools, esp hand tools. Hope to connect with Ira (rustfever) again. When someone says they have too much wood, I am willing to help them out—of some of it!
