Sometimes we get lucky


A group of us were offered some cheap timber, this timber was shipped over 1,000 miles.

Her 'squeaky toy' was kicked under it so she'd stay there for the photo, no sense of humour that dog...

Somebody's gonna be really miffed when he finds his dunny missing in the morning. But looking at the timber, it was overbuilt anyway.

Couple cubes worth? Not bad. What all do you have there? The stuff in the back looks too light to be jarrah; it resembles our redwood.

YOU SUCK!

How did you manage that? Freight alone should have been $1,000.

A number of us had it bulk shipped to a single point where one of us has a forklift and storage space. We then drove there in a convoy of pickups, trucks, unicycles or whatever we could and took it to our homes.
We are forming a kind of e-cooperative to get better deals, it hasn't been spoken overtly, but that is effectively what is happening. We acquired a bunch of Bessey clamps from LV in a similar manner. I think we imported about 3 pallets of clamps.

Glad to see that it's still working out for you. I thought that it was great when you worked out the deal on the Besseys with Robin. It's even better to see it maturing into an ongoing community effort. I love it when a plan comes togetherr.
