Hi Tom,
I saw what bark was selling for during a recent to Omaha and decided to quit hauling it to the dump.
I recieved a long awaited Chriss Pye book folded up an jammed into the mail boxSad . I'll stick the bark in the blister pack that came in and get it off to you

The piece on the right will weigh about a lb after I've trimmed it to fit in an 8x11 blister pack. The piece on the left weighs about 3 lbs and is 24x8(approx). I can send it the way it is (won't know cost till tomorrow)or I can trim off a piece on the bandsaw. The usable width is about 2 1/4" let me know how much you want and I'll figure out the cheapest way to get it to you

Thanks, I would just send it the way it is. Cost should not be too much.

Greg

P.S. the big pc would be fine or a couple of strips would be fine. Don't want to hog all the wood :>)

Well, it cost $8.50 to ship a 3 lb box. kind of steep seems to me but if you're just wanting to try it out I guess it beats the 30 or so bucks you pay for the good stuff (and shipping)

Elwood. You can put a 1 " dowell rod under the bark where you want to break it in between the ridges and it will break natually. Anyway that is what I do with my harvest Plains cottonwood bark . I like the natural edges rather than a cut edge.

The sections actually fall apart fairly easy however I was a little concerned about cutting the pieces to length to fit in standard boxes maybe people would want the longer lengths. What do you think?
