Thread: New Swap (closed)

  1. #1

    New Swap (closed)

    Alrighty everyone, I thought it would be a good idea to do a swap that can include as many members as possible. I was inspired in part by those of us who have grand ideas but sometimes hard difficulty getting around to it... and in part by all of the great things I have seen posted by the many talented people here.
    So I have entitled this swap the Round-To-It Swap and it goes something like this:
    The Rules -
    1. must be made of wood
    2. must be handrcafted by you
    3. project must have some degree of 3D roundness to it
    4. you have to be willing to mail it
    5. do not disclose what you are making to swap so it is a surprise
    6. be willing to receive a surprise project in return


    Examples of roundness... bowls, mallets, pens, round boxes, rounded edge cutting boards etc.
    Anyone interested should reply on this thread that they "are in". I will keep a list of everyone involved and once the projects are completed I will create a swap list. I'm not going to put a cut off date for sign ups so feel free to jump in even if you see this much later down the road.
    Shoot me a pm when your project is ready to go and also let me know if you have any restrictions on where you can ship to. You will be added to the ship list only after you pm me that your project is ready to go.
    I will post the "who ships to who" list on this thread April 14
    All projects should be completed and ready to ship no later than APRIL 13

    Ned sends to Frank
    Frank sends to Rennie
    Rennie sends to Ned.
    I think that is the other Frank Larry, don't remember signing up.
    I took a look that thread thread Larry, but I still think it is a different Frank. (<- link to thread)
    I never sent a PM to Ned and he said in his post "Both Rennie and Frank expressed time/weather concerns and though I'm getting a bit of time in the shop today, it is looking to turn colder tomorrow again." Time is always an issue, but my shop is in the basement, no weather problems there.
    We should ask Ned.
