Saturday, May 30: 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. At the KCWG Shop Parking Lot
See also the volunteer sign-up opportunities at the bottom of this announcement.
You’ve been waiting for this. Approximately 4000 board feet of rough-cut limber available for sale at really decent prices.
Over the past few months we have had the opportunity to see samples of the wood for sale in the Guild shop. Some of the wood has been used in Guild projects and the benefit of air-dried hardwood is obvious after simple machine planning.
The sale will be open to Guild members only. Lumber will be marked with approximate board feet, and pricing will be posted based on species and thickness. All profits from the sale will accrue to the Guild’s general fund to improve services.
We will have the sale in the parking lot of the Guild, so rain is a possibility. If Saturday is obnoxious or dangerous weather-wise we will call off the sale by 9:00 am Saturday and reschedule for Sunday afternoon at 1:00 p.m., May 31, 2015.
You will have an opportunity to sign up for the sale if you want an email notification of the weather delay.
