Just in time for the Holiday Season
Here is a chance for you to clear out your scrap bins and get some unique, personalized stocking stuffers in return.
I am a maker of small woodstuffs. The most popular being my name keychains.
I recently sent out a mailer to dealers of domestic and exotic hardwoods, asking them to sell me scrap/cutoffs by the pound. Out of about 15 dealers, only one replied with a reasonable deal.
I started thinking about how I am with my scraps and how other woodworkers save every last little piece of their precious stock and then I thought of Lumberjocks. THE Woodworking Community.
Here is my proposal.
For every pound of interesting hardwood you send me, I will carve you one (1) name keychain (retail price $6.00) either out of the wood you send me or of the oak, walnut and maple I have in stock, your choice.
Here are my guidelines for the deal;
Wood formerly used in fine furniture acceptable if interesting.
I am flexible. If you have any other ideas for swap, I’d be open to suggestions.
