This is my first shot at trying something like this so I’m open to suggestions.Here is what I came up with.
For those of you that have missed out on the details you can go to the blog at

This is a fundraiser for Lumberjocks and all of the money raised will be given to the site. This is a great site it takes a lot of time and hard work and money to keep it running. This is a chance to win some really beautiful wood and show your appreciation for the site.

3 auctions will start tonight(Saturday) and end on Wednesday at 5:00 PM PST. The auction end time will be extended if there are any bids during the last 1 hour. The possible extended ending time will be in place to give all bidders a fair shot at winning an item and to prevent bidders waiting until last second to place a bid to “steal” the auction.

If you would like to bid just comment on the auction with your bid. We need to start somewhere. If you want to bid $1 to get things started, that’s fine.

The winning bidder of the auction will pay the shipping. You can go to and use my zip code 95816 to figure out your cost. If you need any help with this, send me a message.
I can accept Paypal, credit cards through Paypal, check or Postal money order. Paypal will make it easier for me to get the money to Martin but all forms of payment will be fine.

If you have any questions or comments please post them here, not on the auction threads. I want it to be easy for potential bidder to see the current bid and not have to go through several posts to try and find it.
We are on the honor system here so please only bid if you plan to follow through with payment if you bid.

If there are any updates or changes to the auction they will be posted here.

Will you ship to Canada? It’s usually just a matter of attaching a declaration sticker to the parcel.
