    I got this email this morning:

    Starting tomorrow morning (for about 3 days) I am having a very large old wild cherry tree cut down at my rental in Eastmoreland (SE Portland).  It might be 70 or 80 feet high (but I'm bad at those estimates) and I'd guess that I can only reach a bit over half way around it with both arms.  I hate for the wood just to be disposed of if anyone could use it in woodworking of some kind.  It's very sad to cut it down, and I'd love for something new and beautiful to come of some of it.  Is there anyone in your group who might be interested in using some?

    If you think there might be someone interested, please contact me soon, before it is all carried away.

    At the AAW Symposium in Atlanta there was a special session on remote demonstrations.  Since we had talked about this, I thought you might be interested in a more detailed look at the process.  I'm even more interesated now.

    Last year, Miguel Hernandez donated a box of old wooden planes.  I bought them and sent them to my friend Joe in North Carolina.  He is an old school tool guy.  he repaired a couple of the planes for his use.  In the box was a set of planes for making window frames.  Joe is a friend and student of Roy Underhill (The Woodwright's Shop on PBS).  Underhill was thrilled to get the planes since they are impossible ot find since the advent of the router and will use them in his class on window frame production and possible on TV.  

    Nothing goes to waste.  

    Those planes beyond repair were given to one of Joes friends that has a pirate theme restaurant for the display on the ships carpentry shop.

    I couldn't figure out how to post the picture here so I put it up in Gallery page
