My ears were ringing then I found this post. Thanks for the accolades Jim. I’ll be honest and up front. I did not come on to LJ’s to find new customers. I signed in as a hobby woodworker. That being said, ebay is a business for me, it helps to supplement my income. I take great pride in working with and helping my customers with their needs. Sometimes I am very happy and sometimes (like with any business) I’m like “Oh Please, get real, WTF” I agree Shipping is the biggest killer in a good deal on ebay. It is the biggest problem I face. I charge exact UPS Ground Shipping no fees, and still people feel like they got ripped off. It’s gotten to the point where I’m actually paying some of the shipping myself and offering a flat rate. I do a lot of business out side of ebay. Folks stopping by my storage shed, or contacting me via email with a cut list at [email protected] I cut the items, email photos, and invoice through Pay Pal.
So, I have Thousands of feet of Curly Maple and Curly Cherry, Ambrosia Maple, Curly Hard Maple and a bunch of stuff with cool defects. You are all welcome to it, for any of your needs. This post will be the only time I ever promote my ebay store on Lumber Jocks I feel dirty some how. Mention You are a Lumber Jock during check out and I’ll be sure to give you the insider discounted rate.
The best place to find wood is locally at a saw mill, as a sawmill owner I will be glad to give anyone advice on this also. Thanks
