Where I live, I can find all kinds of wood I couldn’t find (easily) when I grew up in New Jersey. And, I’m sure that woodworkers in Washington state, Arizona, Australia or the United Kingdom can find woods that I’m going to struggle to get my hands on.
Wouldn’t it be a cool idea to have a forum where people could connect to swap their local woods to get someone else’s local woods in return?
That’s exactly why the Wood Barter forum was created. In this community, you can find people who want to trade, sell or barter for wood. There are also tips on felling and milling trees as well as drying your lumber – for the extreme do-it-yourselfer.
The site is free to join, and it provides an interesting look at some really sweet boards.
