First I dont want to soud like a bum:o but I have an abundance of this ambrosia maple on hand and have had a few PM's asking if im selling it.http://www.sawmillcreek.org/showthread.php?t=14750
I want a bigger lathe but I don't see me coming up with the funds any time soon especialy with the Twins on the way. so I have decided to try and sell some bowl blanks to help generate some funds toward the lathe. I plan on using the band saw to round the blanks so the shipping costs will be less, and compleatly sealing the blanks with green wood sealer.
I was thinking of selling them for $10 a blank up to 10x10x4 and buyer pays shipping the blanks will vary in size.
I will # the blanks take a pic of several of them at one time then below the pic make a list and give the size of the blank with a #
first to post what # they want gets that blank. (I will do this in the classifides)
this post is just to see how many would be interested in them.
If you think you would like to get some let me know in this post.
