Looking for arrows and some misc
« on: May 15, 2020, 01:44:18 am »
Not feeling like making arrows, plus lack of extra dried lumber. Nothing fancy, just some various lengths and weights for shooting in the current projects once I get to that point. Would also be interested in a toothed planer blade, a solid knife, good chisels, vintage/antique tools of the trade, finishing supplies(overlays,inlays, that type of stuff).

What I have to trade:
-B55 strings made to your specs (currently have green,silver, Flo purple, neon red b55 and then gold serving)
-Yew staves (Pacific, green, roughed out for faster drying MC 15%-20%)
-Ocean spray shafts and billets(staves once find some of the good big stuff) Green and sealed MC varying from 20%-40%
-Have a lot of spare files

Not sure what else I might have to trade at the moment, stockpile is mostly spoken for on the current projects once I finish getting my mobile shop all setup to start on them lol
Thanks!

I will go harvesting OS this weekend. I have a spot to grab quite a few that look like good stave material, probably a lot of billets as well ;)

 Have some OS now, likely going to end up with billets, but hoping the long thick ones are able to pull a stave from. Updated to add MC range of the wood I have. I may also go looking for some vine maple and pacific dogwood this week.

Located vine maple, will be harvesting this week.
Also I think the yew I got at the moment may be limited to backed applications. Knotty sapwood from limbs being smaller trees, but might be able to keep some sapwood. Largest ones with clearest backs are from dead yew where sapwood was toast anyways

Might be interested in some yew, even if it needs to be backed. I've got some curly koa that would be good for overlays, Hawaiian ohia, which is a nice hard wood with a pinkish brown color, or Hawaiian milo, which is sort of like black walnut (dark heartwood, light sapwood) and is great for carving utensils or turning for bowls. Or, if you are a caffeine junky, I can send some 100% Kona or Ka`u coffee your way. I've also got some random strips of padauk, teak, curly maple, maybe some others. I know this isn't exactly what you are looking for, but thought I'd toss it out there.
