Default Wood Share, Exchange, or thrade?

Hello fellow wood addicts,

I had a thought....would it be possible, with this great community, to start a wood bartering network.

For example I have tons of bigleaf maple(burled), Old growth red cedar, Alaska yellow cedar, yew wood, douglas fir, and so on...the wood I have is in the form of lumber, raw beach chunks, and root stock.

I would be interested in trading for woods from other places.

What do you all have locally?

Just a thought,

Russell

Sounds like fun, I might be able to round up a little basswood from Minnesota. Mesquite, Tupelo (sp) Jelutong, west Texas Juniper all sound interesting. Would like to try all of it.

I can get some chunks of Cats Claw, maybe some palo verde, some Navajo (globe) willow....and maybe even a leezard or two Cowboy Mesquite makes beautiful carvings, that is if you are a masochist and like extremely hard wood.....other than that, makes great canes, walking sticks and delicious steaks and burgers lol (chips in the BBQ)

Mesquite is very hard and difficult with hand tools. It is better with power tools. The finish is spectacular.

I think it's a great idea! My barn's about built; maybe I can be a central exchange place here in Tennessee! I'm thinking of starting selling wood on ebay just because it's readily available here and would like to make it available to carvers.
