IWCS Meeting at Camp Mack

HI Fellow Woodworkers,
First, everyone is invited to a meeting of the IWCS, www.woodcollectors.org, at Camp Mack in north-central Indiana next Saturday.  As you can see in the following announcement. I’ll be there with my sawmill and will have a full dump truck load of various logs to saw to your specifications.  There will be plenty of other wood crafting activities as well.  If you want to just stop to look around (plan for mid morning) you won’t need to pay the $20 registration fee – but lunch will be on your own.

Saturday, September 14, 2013 Great Lakes Fall Regional Meeting, at Camp Alexander Mack in Milford Indiana, for a day of fun, fellowship and learning.Gary Green will be there with his Wood-Mizer sawing logs. You will be able to purchase wood at the saw mill and have it cut to your specifications by Gary, or bring your own log and Gary will saw it for you, for a fee.  We have turning and carving demonstrations planned and will have lathes available that will allow for some pen making. There will also be some craft projects for those wishing to participate. A WOOD AUCTION along with a craft and miscellaneous wood craft auction will be held. Auctions will begin at 1:00.

Don’t forget to bring your wood and craft items for display, and for the auction.

Early Bird Registration, by August 15th , is $16.50 per person.  This includes morning coffee and doughnuts, as well as a delicious noon meal prepared in the camp kitchen. The registration fee starting on August 16th is $20.00 per person.

Make your checks for Registration payable to Roger Pletcher. Send them to him at:  58775 Co. Rd. 7 S, Elkhart, IN 46517-9227.  For more information call Roger at 574-293-1290 or e-mail him atrlpletcher@msn.com.

Camp Mack is located a little over a mile East of State Road 15, just South of Milford, IN.  See www.campmack.org for a map and detailed driving directions.

I took a few thousand board feet of mostly walnut and cherry out of the kiln over the past week.  Some will be coming back from the planing mill on Tuesday, the rest in a week or so.  I also pulled out some 3 X 3″ lengths of hard maple that will be trimmed into table leg blanks soon.  Without a doubt, I have the largest inventory of lumber and leg blanks ever.  Also, because of increased volume my UPS and freight rates are as low as they’ve been in ten years.  Let me know what you need!

Last, If you like wide lumber or nice white oak take a look at this listing on eBay.  You won’t believe what you’re seeing:

I have nearly all of my inventory listed on eBay in 100 bd. ft. lots.  take a look in my store – wood-r-me.
Hope to see you in Milford!
