As the name implies, Wood Barter was conceived as a place where woodworkers can trade wood at no cost to the parties involved other than the parties' own shipping costs. Members can also buy and sell wood here at no cost to them. Members are dealing with other individual members when they engage in trades (“trade/s” include buying, selling, or trading).
As the BETA site was being tested by a small group of woodworking hobbyists & professionals, it became apparent that the members also wanted a more traditional woodworking forum so, in addition to being a place to trade wood, the site is also a place where woodworkers are able to discuss various topics of interest with others of like mind.
Wood Barter is not a "barter exchange". We do not arrange trades between other parties, and we do not charge any commissions or fees of any kind whatsoever. Nor do we assess, determine, nor assign any value to anyone's item/s, nor do we aid anyone in doing so. We are merely a place where people can meet, freely associate, and exchange wood if they so desire, and we are not a party to any exchange/s in any way.
You may express your spirituality or faith indirectly such as in your signature line, or for example by ending a post with an expression of praise for the Alien Reptilian Goddess of your choice . . . but use common sense. WB Staff does not want you to have to hide your faith of choice, just don't start a thread about it nor a discussion about it within an existing thread.
These rules may be changed and/or modified without notice. Thank you for your cooperation and participation on this site. If you're unsure about something, always ask a WB Staff member or post it on the forum in the “Site Help” section if you do not yet have enough posts to use the PM system.Wood Barter Staff.
