We acquired a large supply of pre-finished 1/2" birch/maple drawer parts (solid wood). It was of various sizes ranging from 3 inches wide to 12 inches wide. We are currently storing it on six pallets in the back of Larry Borg's oversized one-ton stake bed truck. It is full.

We need ideas on where to store the wood. We can store some at the shop in town, but there is most likely more than the available space.  The current projects that we can use the wood for is the Paddle game, jewelry boxes, cradles, animal cutouts, airplane wings, helo blades, etc. We will undoubtably be finding new uses for it.  Please let me know if anyone has room for a portion of the wood in their shops or elsewhere. Thanks.

We will probably be having an unloading party sometime soon. Stand by...

We are planning an UNLOADING PARTY for tomorrow SATURDAY Jan 5th, 2013, at 10 am at the RCWA Shop. We will be unloading Larry Borg's one ton truck. If you can store any wood, please come by too.  Please let me know if you can come, so we can plan accordingly. Thanks!
PS - if you have a spare fork lift, bring it along!

A storage area with a fork lift was provided by member Dave Dittmer.  Two tall stacks of wood on pallets was loaded into the storage area with the help of Dave's son Bob on Saturday morning.  Thanks for your help Dave and Bob!  Thanks to Larry Borg for letting us store the wood on your truck for the last few weeks!
Loose wood not on pallets were unloaded into the RCWA Shop area.  Wood donations from Chuck at Wilkinson Custom Cabinets were also unloaded from Grant Coffins truck.  Redwood cutoffs from Clayton were planed by Julian Wigen and unloaded as well.  Loose wood was sorted into sizes and types for easy selection.
A big thank you to the following Toymakers who came for the UNLOADING:
Grant Coffin, Harley Schmadeke, Rick Weisbeck, Bel Felix, Darwin Buus, Julian Wigen, Steve Larson, Gary Graves, Larry Borg, Frank Dicesare, and Bob Buchanan.
