    Ill ask one more time about shorts

    Im not going to make any cutting boards or small boxes anytime soon.
    I need to start cleaning out shorts and strips.
    I have a dozen different species.
    Im not looking to post this as an insult to anyone, but if anyone is a box builder or cutting board type of woodworker, birdhouses, small stuff, I can give you enough shorts,(8-15 inches average,4/4-5/4 some more, some have splits you have to navigate around, some have fantastic grain).

    Im also not going to use the ash I destroyed while resawing.(alot of wormholes) It will net 1/2 inch width now with planing, they are all 4 feet long, 6 inches wide, maybe 6 boards.

    I also have alot of long strips, 1-2 inches wide, all different thickness.

    I can give you 50, 100, 150 bf, whatever you need, or take it all. Im not looking at this like Im a good guy, just alot of shorts, tons of it, and its going to sit around till I trip over them and then toss them all.

    Im 35 minutes from GW bridge and about 35 minutes from the Verrazano.(southwest nassau county)

    Im around whenever, late night, early, weekends, no problems.

    A picture so its clear what IM offering. Just an example in pics.the piece with marker on it is approx 6x11 inches

    Those would make some great shaker box tops/bottoms. I'd jump all over them if it wasn't a 15 hour drive.

    I'm not that far and them sizes are what I use to repair a lot of furniture. I'll talk to Jarrod and see if he will make a trip up. We trashed our shorts when I down sized and I am missing having them.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Let me throw this in the mix . . .

    I'm in NJ - close enough to Allen to make a pickup.

    I'm heading to D.C. Presidents Weekend - weather permitting. I can do "snowbound" here in NJ - no need to experience it in DC.

    Dave is somewhere near D.C. if that the Beltway he's referring to.

    I can probably carry a box or 2 of shorts on my journey without displacing one of the kids.

    If we can figure out the logistics I'd be interested in helping out.

    Any thoughts Dave?

    Jim

    Careful Dave I hear Jim has to drive his family around in one of those big school buses.
