For the past few years as the You-Tube channel has grown in popularity I have received a lot of interest form viewers about buying the wood they see in the videos. I have been reluctant in the past in pursuing this more but with the addition of the new kiln last summer my inventory is growing faster than I can find a place to store it. In years past I had a great relationship with a woodworking store over in North Carolina. They would take all my wood/slabs that I kiln dried and handle the sell for me for a portion of the revenue. This was a great partnership that lasted many years and kept me doing what I love most, sawing wood and not having to spend time with the business side as much. That store however closed during the pandemic and never reopened. Since then I have been pretty much stock piling most of what you see on the videos. I have decided that I am now going to take the time needed and start up an online wood store. The only drawback for this will be the shipping cost to the customer, it seems that service in this country has really increased over the last year. I am not sure yet on when I will launch the store but it will be before spring time.
I plan on selling smaller live edge slabs, such as the ones that are shorter (4ft in length) and suited for smaller projects. I will also offer small batches of boards and off cuts. Make no mistake if you are a woodworker and needing enough stock to build a set of cabinets or a kitchen table then this store will not serve your needs. After I get my feet wet I may venture into the idea of selling larger/longer slabs but right now I want to keep it simple as we get started. As far as pricing I will have to work that out but don't worry I am cheaper than most, I just wish that the shipping companies stared that characteristic.
