Here it comes (or there it goes?)

I've now officially got less than a month left here in Colorado before my family and I head back to Virginia. I wasn't a woodworker while there, but I am now, and will be looking for good advice on preparing my tools for short-to-medium term storage (could be a month, could be a year) and getting them ready to move as well.

It's a job change that has caused this, and I couldn't be happier. I'm going back to an old employer and am really looking forward to working for them again.

I'll post a forum entry about this, but if there are any woodworkers in the Denver area that want some free wood, I'll give it to the first who claims it (and claims it all, please). Should include a little tiger maple and purpleheart in there with some rock maple and various forms of oak. Nothing great, but some wood that ought to be salvageable and free to a good home.

I can't really give you much advice, but welcome back to VA.

Well, for starters, I would be very concerned with humidity.

As you know, Colorado is dry and you can leave a tool sitting out and it won't rust over night. If you plan to store your tools for a month back east, I would consider some kind of desiccant, or grease to coat the metal parts. You don't want to open your tool box and find the planes all rusted.

HI Bret,
If you still have the wood available, I would more than happy to pick it up!
