Some of the tales are legendary. “My two neighbors and I found out about this rare tree that was being cut into boards and we JUST HAD to have it. So, we loaded up the trailer and started a cross-country trek…”
Other woodworkers look locally, buying their wood from sawyers who cut trees that grew minutes from their homes.
Either way, when it comes to wood, we can be kinda crazy. That’s why this week, I want to know just how far you have ever traveled to pick up a load of hardwood (or choice softwood, for that matter) lumber. Remember, I’m only looking for the farthest you have ever traveled – not how far you would be willing to travel if the right board came along.
