    On this day in 2011 Wood Barter was born!

    8 years ago, the late great @Kevin had a wild idea to start a new website. I'm so glad he did.
    Thanks Kevin.
    And thank you to all the members who stuck around after he passed away. As the old saying goes, "The show must go on!", Thank you for helping keep this show alive.
    Thank you all for discussing literally everything here you love and like/hate to love: kids, grandkids, pets, hobbies, work, accomplishments, the highs and lows of your life, completed works of art, logging the insanely beautiful stumps you find on the side of the road, spelling goofs, plans, traditions, and for buying and selling and bartering! You know, basically, The marrow of your life.
    Thank you ever so much for sharing it with us.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY WOOD BARTER!!!

    Happy Collective Birthday to the group! Many thanks to Marc, Doc, Scott, Greg, Ken, Barry. Andrew, Colin and Paul for keeping the lights on and the machines running! I can't think of a better tribute to Kevin than to see it still going and flourishing! Tony

    Happy Birthday indeed.

    Didn't realize it had been so long. Makes me very glad that WoodWorkingTalk became so disgustingly commercialized that Kevin couldn't hold off any longer on his plan of creating WB and brought Daren (he and Kevin were mods over there) and a bunch of the rest of us along for the ride. We were all fed up w/ WWT and really glad that Kevin started WB.

    Yeah. After leaving I never looked back but I didn't think to cancel my membership so I STILL get the occasional email saying someone replied to an old thread I was in. Only a couple a year and I ignore them.

    I came over from there too. But, @rockb referred me to WB when I was looking for some manzanita.

    That's because he had been building it on the bench, not under it....
